does anyone know who this artist is?

i tore this out of a brochure a few years ago and now i don't know who the photographer is and i really want to know. it was an exhibit at the art institute of chicago. i think the artist is japanese. but maybe not. does anyone know?


what we were like before

i was messed up before this
i came to the hospital on a float
i had metal binges. i tried to eat my car.

everyday i decided to quit. i threw out all of the cutlery,
nails, kitchen appliances, etc.
i looked for the nearest parade

the man that ate an airplane was not
an overachiever.
he was mentally ill.
