Nagata produced work "KIOKUGAMI" which copied things invisible as such such as personal image scenery called "memory" or social history that we followed through the medium of paper as seen thing for many years.
It is space-time of existence as thing of cake mould which continued making celebration cake and human story around that that memory drawn up by work talks.
We collect shoe trees of Japanese confectionery used in various parts of Japan from the latter period during the Edo era to the Showa era, and Nagata is used for work.
Many "wakakami" made with shoe tree which reflected regionality and manners and customs of each place stands. They are cast as by creativity of Nagata, and new art is born.
