Preparation of representation
2012
Photogram, photo paper, floatglass, wooden stands
H700 × W1,500 × D700 mm

Description
To save and observe a plant and a human body etc. using a microscope glass slide.
I have tried to preserve and observe the nature and function of a wave.
Just as part of the various things, so part of the a wave is cut out by photogram.
Because I have been seeing a lot of trace and a menace in the wave after 3.11.
Those observations with the photogram have a representation of the wave that can not be seen in the positive picture.

*Photogram
A photogram is a photographic image made without a camera by placing objects directly onto the surface of a light-sensitive material such as photographic paper and then exposing it to light.

顕微鏡とプレパラートを用い、植物や人体等様々なモノの一部を切り出し観察保存するよう に、 波の一部をフォトグラムによって切り取り、その性質や働きの観察保存を試みた。なぜ なら 3.11 以降、波の脅威とその痕跡を多く目にしたからである。 フォトグラムで記録する事 によって、そこには、ポジの写真映像では見えない波の表象が存在する。

*フォトグラム
カメラを用いずに、印画紙の上に直接物を置いて感光させるなどの方法により制作される 写真作品。

Incandescent light bulb
2010
Incandescent light bulb and handmade projector
Dimensions Variable

Description
We can see things with the light, but we can't see the thing that emits the light.
By visualizing it, I will express the relation of two eyes of subject and object which are always in the image.
There are two types at the same time "(subject) what you see, what you know" and, "(object) what is seen, what is known.

光でモノを見る我々は、発光するモノ自体を見る事は出来ない。 それを可視化することによって、映像における主体と客体の2つの視線の関係を表現する。「見るもの、知るもの(主体)」と「見られるもの、知られるもの (客体) 」の2種類が同時にそこに存在する。

Glass bottles
2008
Woodbox, glas bottle, float glass
H1,200 × W1,450 × D100 mm

Description
The subject is a transitory material that does not have a clear outline. It expresses "out of focus" or "shake" in the photographic meaning. The wooden box contains a glass bottle which is covered with horizontal float glass bars in front.
The glass bottle is reflected in each bar and changes the projected figure when the viewer moves.

写真表現にある「ブレ」や「ボケ」にある、輪郭を明確に持たない物質の移ろいやすさをテーマに制作。 木箱の内側にガラス瓶を置き、その前方に板ガラスを横に重ね合わせる。その板ガラス一枚一枚にガラス瓶が反射し、鑑賞者が移動することで、その映し出される姿が変化して行く。

Relation
2005
Floatglass, light and shadow
H940 × W940 × D60 mm

Description
Glass has the property that light can shine through it. The shadow of the glass that has been projected, by light on the walls and floor, stands as a symbol appears as a three-dimensional object exceeds the, real image of just one dimension.
This work creates a sense that is similar to photos and video with glass, light and shadow.

ガラスは光を通すという特性を持っています。壁や床に光によって映写されたガラスの影は、まさに一つの立体物として表象が実像を超え立ち現われる様と言えるでしょう。
この作品は、ガラスと光と影で、その写真や映像に似た感覚を作り出します。
