Japanese joints are constructed as a series of joints that fit, interlock, and come apart from each other. Eventually, each joint should extend from one to the other to represent axes that are interlocked with each other. The joint is made out of layered chipboard and is spray painted; representing one primary color: red. The text on the joint is a relay that acts as a coded message representing the semi-circle cutouts. The text is printed by an inkjet printer to produce a certain texture to the joint.
