Silicone Sculptures that Look Alive

Kazuhiro Tsuji has a 25 years experience working as a special effects make-up Artist.  These are just some of the films he worked on: Looper, Planet Of The Apes, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Salt, Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Ring 2, Blade 3, How The Grinch Stole Christmas, Men In Black.  When it comes to his sculptures, he tries to capture the inner thought and emotion of the person, giving them an expression that is almost frozen in time.  They give you the impression that if time were allowed to continue, the face would morph into another expression and continue as a normal person that seconds earlier was just standing very very still.  Tsuji gets a kick out of seeing people interacting with his sculptures and that is what drives him to continue.
