In the exhibition named “Mode less Code,” Tsumura showed fabrics, reusing plugs and LAN cables, which were destined to be industrial waste. It is not just because he has been very good at using themes such as “recycling” and “ecology”. But also classical working techniques with his hands, such as “knitting by hand” and “patchwork” are based on his pure sincerity as artist, who is a fashion designer on the other hand. Tsumura considers about the invisible added value, such as “time” and “techniques”, which is made in the background of handwork. He says, “I consider of the relieved mind by twisting strings each other, not to stop my own creativity by taking it for craft and design.”

Tsumura comments for this exhibition as follows:
“The surface of the city, where mode melts unclearly and stopped to work, floats in the air wondering to look for warmth in those old days impossible to go back. This is my challenge to make another dreamy code by using affectionate traditional craft-techniques such as “knitting by hand” and “patchwork”, and to put good sleep to the functional monster called “development”, which is flooded with the jungle of mechanical codes, and natural design made of chemical materials.

This artwork is a collage of photographs of a model wearing the artwork “dragon stole” and two broken mirrors.
