When I was a child, I often wondered what was happening outside of the earth. However, I couldn't find any answer at all. I still remember sometimes I would have some weird feelings. Strange images would come to my mind, which I couldn't express in words.
People perceive, recognize and imagine. Although we can not always imagine things with certainty, I don’t think it is important to find answers. On the other hand, I noticed that this ability to feel must be "something" very fundamental existing in human souls.

In this project, I’ve defined a "fictional planet" where all the images were taken from multiple locations. I tried to catch the flow of circulation and time passing of this planet, in order to reproduce "something" on the paper.

子供の時、常に地球の外側には何が広がっているのか、起こっているかなどを考えていた。答えなんて全く見つけることができるわけがなく、頭に奇妙なイメージの断片が浮かんで来たのを今でも鮮明に憶えている。その感覚は人間が根源的に持っている"何か"であるのではないか。

このプロジェクトでは、複数の場所や素材からのイメージの連なりを「架空の惑星」と定義した。そして統一性と微小な差異が静止した紙の上を循環し、ページの余白に円環的な時間が流れる。惑星が運行する時間の流れそのものをつかみ取ろうとした。
