Daijiro Chiba is a member of the artist unit Kounan/ Ko-nan/ Konan. Images of an Ideal Human is a concept which has been released from the Central Education Council in 1966. The concept is for declaring the goal of the upper secondary education. What images were suitable for an ideal human who had an identity? Answering of the question became the goal. The concept appeared in a model of the morality of Japanese. In Hakkenden DF, Chiba uses Kanji figures as the symbols of the moral. Cross-word like blanks indicate the ambiguity of the goal. The controlled image evokes the discipline. But the characterized figure also provokes the change of the concept itself, like a robot gets its personality. With a breakdown and repression in browser crash, the artist verifies the insincerity of the moral. In addition, Chiba shows painting on glass with various motives such as a single Kanji figure and a portrait of Kohei Kiguchi.
