Jun Homma handles the invisible landscape which evokes memory and information about the place. The artist produces an invisible domain intentionally in the visible domain. Homma develops the optic belief in his artwork regardless of media ,such as physical performing arts, a sculpture, and as an installation. When it became the approach for the photograph, the work becomes remarkable. The image UV printed on an aluminum plate is scratched violently. Instead of the landscape, the surface of photograph is shown as the material wreckage. Furthermore, the center of the work which lost the image are politely polished and it reflects like a mirror. When a viewer takes a step forward to the artwork, the person understand him or herself that there is a self portrait inside of it. It is a figure of memory and acknowledgement. There is a concentration camp in German, or there are cherry blossom trees under the emergency declaration outside of the portrait. The landscapes are fixed the imperfection and continue drifting in time.
