My work seeks to grasp ephemeral moments, like those taken in photography. I turn them into permanent and material forms. I want to encourage profound and direct experience of looking, and stimulate viewers’ visual awareness. My art aspires to unleash people from their forces of habit, and the restrictions hidden in their daily lives.
As soon as the brain encounters something organised or designed, it starts a process of analysis. This causes tension and fatigue. The things I make are elaborate and complex, but at the same time it looks simple. The quantities of visual information I use are beyond what can normally be assessed, but paradoxically, this relaxes the viewer. It is like looking at, say, the grain of well-thumbed wood, or a city at night, or movement on the surface of water: viewers’ brains give up attempts at analysis via established knowledge and notions. As if tricked, the viewer can gradually accept a pure relationship between the thing in front of them, and what lies within themselves. They are freed from all restraint.
Capitalist society is for ever expanding. This is true even in situations where individual consumption shrinks. Society seeks profit, promoting more and more systematisation and control. Established notions also function to constrain people and make them rigid. My work, I hope, finds a chaotic niche within this, and so provides clues to a break from our problems, or even their resolution.
I encased a fresh tulip flower. Now someone can have it beside them wherever and
whenever they like. People today are stressed because of the overwhelming volume
of work. In Japanese, the character "busy / 忙しい" is written with the combination of
'losing' and 'mind'.
Tulips symbolise 'consideration'. Keeps this beside you, and I hope you regain your peace of mind and feel a reduction of stress.
This beautiful tulip was exceptionally rare in the 17th century and it was very expensive. In the 20th century it is incinerated as soon as it is discovered that virus is the characteristic of its pattern.
* In 17th century, tulip flower have brought up first bubble economics in Netherland in the World.
*for the people too much compressed by something and feel too much about sense of responsibility. instead of smartphone.
