Paramodel is an art unit founded in 2001, consisting of Yasuhiko Hayashi and Yusuke Nakano. They attempt to create models of paradise, picturesque scenery, or paradoxes, using items from everyday life. Through the production process of creating or playing with models or dioramas, the simple act of "playing" plunges into the realm of the poetic, the unknown, the aesthetic, and the mysterious. Their quest is to discover the point of entry into this realm.
In this current painting, they use the format of euma, paintings unique to the Japanese culture. Euma is the common tradition of drawing images of prayers or wishes on wooden boards as offerings at Japanese temples and shrines. These boards, as representations of the prayers or wishes, carry the mystery of the potential fulfillment, which could be a permanent process that could never be complete, a dream abandoned to eternity. By adding drawings of bird's-eye images reminiscent of never-ending network links such as sewage pipes, electric cables, network circuits and integrated circuits, Paramodel creates a poetic interpretation alluding to the nature of connection, infinity and mystery.
