Realfasctan is a collaborative artist book by Yuri Iwamoto and I. Our attempt was to follow those ‘Likes’ we find daily that tend to drift away. Why is it good? Which parts are good? Using each other’s tools, we tried to identify the touch of “Likes” as precisely as possible. A simple presence of a tree, a vivid performance behind the screen, a firefly squid, an unconscious sculpture or mural, a kitchen, or a cup. Sometimes running side by side, sometimes throwing passes at each other, we relentlessly followed these sensations of comfort, curiosity, and awe. These ‘Likes’ take shape with an imperfect reproduction rate of about 60%, with corners being skimmed off in the material’s limitations and the conversation’s flow. This book is a visual sketchbook of our inner images and sensations, including those uncontrollable spaces. Realfacestan is a space with a syrupy river of simmered casual curiosity flowing between us.
