In the series called PET(Portrait of encountered things) Usui reproduces disposable plastic products into fragile glass sculptures. Using these unique sculptures, he re-stages a familiar landscape which we overlook as a small-scale installation. His carefully constructed installations have aesthetic beauty like those of still life paintings. Usui’s glass sculptures seem like a lens to see the society through them, questioning our mass consuming culture in contrast.
