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 visualises 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.
The concept is "viewing the planets as if choosing food for breakfast." In this project, the inherent similarity between the moon and an egg, which we often feel without conscious thought, will be depicted more clearly, offering a fresh perception of everyday objects.
In Japan, there is a dish called Tsukimi Soba (月見そば), where a raw egg is placed on top of the noodles to resemble the moon. The ability to associate the moon with everyday food showcases the unique imagination of human beings. Explore some of our favorite dishes featuring eggs as planetary elements and let your imagination soar.
