Japanese washi paper made of plant fibers, and experimental equipment generally made of steel and other metals for the sole purpose of producing scientific results.

Platinum-palladium prints use the photosensitivity of iron salts to form images with platinum and palladium. These elements are woven together to create this work.

Japanese washi paper has a history of over 1,000 years and is durable. Similarly, platinum prints are said to last 500 years.

The base of this work, Tosa Hakinnshi / Japanese Washi Paper, was carefully made by craftsmen in Ino-cho and is especially suitable for platinum prints.

Exhibited works in this exhibition are not only works of art, but also a record/memory of science in this time, platinum prints printed on Japanese washi could be a device to tell the history of science in 500 or 1000 years to come.
