I am presenting portraits of an artist, Mat Bevel who is a performer, kinetic art sculptor and director/curator of his own Museum, Museum of Kinetic Art. His characters-52 characters have been made- are created from his imagination, and the costumes are using materials reprocessed from industrial and daily waste products. According to Mat Bevel, these characters are staff members and each of them has important roles in the Mat Bevel Kingdom.

About "Dreamtime Dreaming" series
Meaning of the term ‘dream’ points to "to travel", and "to live a life".
When the beings that hold energy, that is, humans travel and walk along, there are footsteps left behind them. Those acts of leaving those energies and the spirits, are called “dreaming”, and you call the time that the dreaming was conducted as “dream time”.
For me, traveling is not only a means to have new experiences, or to meet with the unknown; it is also a means of spiritual cultivation. In my Journeys, I have used photography as contemplative process analogous to Dreamtime of Australian Aborigine.
Born in Kyoto, Japan. Studied photography at San Francisco Art Institute and Arizona State University. My photographs are in the permanent collections of Third View Projects archive in Tempe, Arizona, Arizona State University Museum and The Center for Photography at Woodstock , New York. I work on individual, collaborative, and research projects that involve techniques that range from digital imaging to 19th century photographic processes.
