Statement

My practices are to output a concept as an abstract action through the study what everyone is recognizing as a commonsense. The commonsense often include values what are built up as social systems, which is by the nation or more close to our everyday’s life such as consume system. However, common recognitions individuals have are exist on the far place from the social systems, which have not been decided by anybody, belong with people naturally. My work is based on the research about the differences between individual lifestyle, value or thought, and social system. For instance, these are by fiction film, and on the other way, by documentation film of the action seems non-sense like throwing stones, or the action inspired by surroundings on the certain place.
The reason for understanding of that the environment influence for the prescription of the social system, I often change the working fields. In my thought, an artist should be not only as a researcher who investigate some aspects, but also should be as an explorer who provoke the possibility of the new world. In order to be as an explorer, I use a deductive method.

個人の生活スタイルや価値観と社会構造との差異を軸に、最近は主に誰もが常識として認識している前提や消費活動について考察を行い、抽象的な行為としてのアウトプットを試みています。例えばその手法は、時に劇映画の手法であったり、あるいは石を投げるなどの全く無意味に思える行動や、ある土地からインスピレーションを得た行為のドキュメンテーションであったりします。
そして土地または環境は、社会構造を規定する重要な要素であると理解しているため、意図的に場を変えたり、他の場所同士を比較したりして考察を行います。
私は、アーティストは事象を掘り起こす、新たな世界の可能性を切り開く探検家のような人物であるべきだと考えています。そのために、常に演繹的な思考をもとに作品制作を行います。
