The works of Japanese artist Yuichi Ikehata convey a haunting image of human decay in a futurist manner. Ikehata creates realistic sculptures of human body parts using clay, wire and paper. He then photographs the sculptures and merges them into unrealistic worlds to create Fragment of Long Term Memory, an ongoing photographic series that “puts audiences in the ambivalent position of not knowing what is real and what is not.”

“Many parts of our memories… are often forgotten, or difficult to recall. I retrieve those fragmented moments and reconstruct them as surreal images. I gather these misplaced memories from certain parts of our reality, and together they create a non-linear story, resonating with each other in my photographs.” says Yuichi.

Following their physical realization, Ikehata digitally adds hyperrealistic photographic elements like skin, eyes, hair and nails to the network of twisted metal cables. Each work relays a haunting sense of human decay, combined with a futuristic feeling that our bodies may not be what they seem. The pieces bridge the gap between reality and fiction.

“I gather these misplaced memories from certain parts of our reality, and together they create a non-linear story, resonating with each other in my photographs.”
