Drawing on the philosophical writings of Ludwig Wittgenstein, Arakawa's work explores the relationship between experience and expectation, throwing conventional meaning into question. As a result of these probings Arakawa's works may seem less engaged with contemporary culture. But the logic that his work calls into question is extremely relevant to a modern society that is driven by the continual circulation of mass-reproduced information.
