Shikata ga nai

The concept: Shikata ga nai – It cannot be helped

Shikata ga nai is a Japanese saying meaning “It cannot be helped.” This series began with an exploration of the Japanese aesthetic and the philosophy of Shikata ga nai. I developed the “Aesthetic” poster and then “Release” followed; release being my interpretation of Shikata ga nai. “Perspective” is the third piece in the series and ties the previous two posters together as perspective alludes to both physical and philosophical sight.
