Many people are familiar with the classic hollowed-out book method for storing secret items but Ryuta Iida takes that method in order to create wonderful artistic sculptures.
The sculptures are made by cutting and rearranging large volumes of paper, resulting in objects that are reminiscent of Mayan temples. Other examples of Ryuta Iida's artwork involves graphic designs and comic book-like illustrations which are also created through the cutting and pasting of various narrative material.
By taking one art form and reworking it into another, Iida is demonstrating the potential for transformation via art and design. The artwork looks like the result of what the mind does when it creates visual imagery in response to reading a story.
