The Crystalized Project was first created in 2007, the exhibition at Now! was in honor of Yoshioka being named Creator Of The Year. Says Yoshioka, Crystalized is a reflection of the "Relationship between power of nature and human beings," and tries to create and reveal a new portrait of nature. "Crystal works, the result of the laws of nature and unpredictable beauty, pursues nature's beauty of essence, strength, and the fearful side with its astounding power."
