Urushi lacquer was used as a adhesive material. This led to Kintsugi, a technique which consists of repairing a broken object by using the Urushi as adhesive and outlining the line of fracture with gold powder. Kintsugi is more than a way of repairing an object and has a philosophical meaning to it.
In this art piece, a lense was cut into small pieces and put back again using the kintsugi technique to recreate the view. The Urushi is used to merge the pieces in a physical way as well as to recreate the landscape of the view.
