Kim Teppei use all sorts of different tactics to reveal invisible phenomenon, blurring the outline of things. He tends to use COTS products in the works. Although these everyday objects themselves are very complete, he puts them as they can be organized into a new form of material fragments. In the decomposition of the familiar items - stationery, maps, musical instruments, cosmetics, advertising, toys, dolls and plug even plastic bottles - after which he will reassemble these items, to create a new, sometimes just like the outline of organisms items. At the same time, he gives these items a solid rhythm and thick texture, so they can be organized endlessly. Even if he uses a variety of different production methods, but he has the same goal is to show invisible phenomenon, completely destroyed the things separated boundaries, link them, giving them the appearance of variable. These can be considered to protect and extend the concept of freedom of a series of attempts.
