There are always stories of "Time" behind Todo's artworks. The artist structured his style centered with various forms of things collected by walking on the theme of "uniqueness of place." The most representative artwork would be the ones he made during his stay in German, and the cutting stone artworks from historical sites in various countries around the world, with polishing and embedding glass between them. The Basalt series uses the lined pillar made of basalt for installation which the artist got inspiration from Joseph Beuys's 7000 oaks and basalt installation that he saw at Documenta 7. Moreover, his book series use books of western philosophy, novel, bible and hymns to create artworks by two methods: inserting glasses between books or solidifying the pages with resin. Todo's works are a combination of what he felt about Western European civilization during his staying at Düsseldorf for more than 10 years, and of Japanese sense of beauty. His recent years after moving back to Japan, Todo is creating artworks using debris from famous building built during high economic growth period in Japan but were destroyed for Olympics, with same techniques.
