  • “I loved the first Jurassic Park, and I talked about it for hours with the friends I saw it with. Those dinosaurs were the first I saw on film that didn’t have people inside them. A few months later, the team from Industrial Light and Magic that handled the special effects in Jurassic Park came to Japan, and they said they wanted to meet me! I took them out for fugu, and I told them what I would have done in the movie. Then, during the US leg of my solo exhibition, I was invited to give a lecture at the ILM offices in San Francisco. I didn’t get to meet George Lucas [who founded ILM], but he did eventually ask me to design a Star Wars character. I think it’s going to be displayed in his museum.”
