Kohei Nawa is a Japanese artist that is interested in surfaces. He covers Taxidermy with crystal beads and balls which alter the skin and the way we perceive the animal. There are a million different views of an animal covered in beads and each bead offers it’s own distorted view of the original. The grouping of all of these distorted partial views grouped together even suggests the way the public is fed information and how even when seeing all of the view still obscures the original object/intent/idea.
