【a strong hope against a strange disease】Explanation

Zineen

◆Charity TOY held at an original art exhibition in New York

This is a charity toy that was shown at an original art exhibition held by Zineen in the US. It was made with the message “Your existence can be hope” using a real-life strange disease as a motif. Therefore, the sales of this product were donated to charity, expressing the chain of hope that someone else can be saved by their existence.

Artexpo New York 2016 Show Recap

Originally, I created “Strange Disease and Hope” as a “Zineen Original Art Exhibition” in NY, USA in 2016. The video shows the exhibition site. It was held in one of the booths at the exhibition.

The photo shows an exhibition. A foreign kid is looking at the goods for sale with great interest. (Laughter)

Enlargement of the actual color original. As you can see, there are stickers, cards, and figures that come only with the original paintings. There is a difference in the added value of merchandise and original art.

The proceeds from the sale of this product were donated to charity, expressing the chain of hope that someone else can be saved by their existence.

◆Work Contents

When the goods were released in Japan, they were sold in random pieces without knowing the contents. Nowadays, they are not sold again, so they are very valuable.

A total of 16 types of figures

At first, we made the large faces out of rubber material, but the cost was too high to keep the selling price down. Due to the nature of charity toys, we could not make a profit, so we changed from large faces to small figures.

The plan was to attach a body to it, but the cost would have doubled due to the need to take both sides of the body when removing the mold, so the plan was cancelled. After that, we developed a method to make the hard material half hollow and fill it with rubber clay.

The result is a cheap figure made of hard front and soft back rubber, just like Zombole, and sold as a set of two figures, one with a large face and one with a small face.

Normal card & Kira Prism Sticker included

There are normal and Kira Prism stickers, and five types of Kira materials. There are also rectangular cards, but currently only the ones that come with the originals.
