Japanese artist Teppei Kaneuji’s assemblages of ready made objects could be described as ‘time based sculpture’, not only due to their process of making, but also because of the ideas he works with. In his White Discharge (Built-up Objects) series for example, objects are categorized by form and color, dismantled, and then piled up and connected to other objects, with white polyester resin poured gradually over the final construction. Kaneuji does not seek meaning the materials he selects or the forms he builds. Rather, he dislocates objects, depriving them of their original function and value as consumer goods. His method is rooted in his own physical senses and the rhythms of contemporary life as he experiences it; he compares his process to that of a music mix-tape, which links songs together using personal criteria.
