‘Three’ is an artists unit consisting of three people who live and work in Fukushima. They produce art pieces by using huge amount of discretionary items including fish-shaped soy sauce bottle, figure dolls of cartoon or game characters and candies. They have a keen interest in opposite but multi-layered subjects such as ‘large-scale production and consumption’, ‘individual and community’, ‘cities and regions’. They are trying to create a visualisation of different kinds of aspect in the modern society, sometimes in an ironic way.
