Gitai (Gitai means biological mimicry in Japanese) is an art book collection with the theme of "object’s mimicry" by a Japan based designer, Tomoyuki Koseko. By applying the concept of biological mimicry to objects, he visualizes new experimental graphics and archives them as specimens through an annual art book publication. The purpose is to raise new thinking by connecting two different images through visual comparisons.
A series of graphic design experiments of visualizing unexpected similarities between maps and meats. The objective of this work is to suggest a new perspective on the world map. Finland Sirloin Steak, one of main features of the book, looks just like a raw sirloin steak. However, its shape is a trace of Finland. I have made lakes and rivers in Finland to look as though they’ve been covered in salt. The interesting thing about this work is how it presents a new perspective when it has been colored in red. Salted areas which are the lakes and rivers do really exist in the world.
