ゆらぎ太陽 Sunshine Pulse, Sunshine Volition




"ゆらぎ太陽" はその様な作業を繰り返し、目に見えない波にゆさぶられながら撮影した、"游ぐ太陽"と"1/fの太陽"で構成しました。
"游ぐ太陽 Sunshine Pulse" では、先の見えない不安感に強くつつまれた社会で、自分の生活圏である東京の空気と水で育つ桜を媒体として太陽の光にレンズを向けました。生まれ育った日本を象徴する桜に自分を投影し、太陽の光を希望、闇を現代社会に潜む不安に置き換える事で、その間をゆれ動く自分の感覚や感情を写真に写し撮る事は出来ないだろうかと考えたからです。
”1/f の太陽 Sunshine Volitionでは、地球の生態系のバランスが崩れ身体の外から負の波を感じる事が多い今、自分の内側にある意志の力や選択をするという事の重要性を考ながら撮影をしました。


Yuragi Taiyou Sunshine Pulse, Sunshine Volition

The sun is the source of life and it gives me hope, happiness, future,and the joy to live.
The time I spend doing photography while basking in the light of the sun is important and necessary for me in order to come face to face with myself and establish a relationship with myself " now" .
The memories that are summoned up by taking photographs in the warm sunshine invoke to me a future filled with hope.
I take photographs imagining that perhaps I can transcribe something that was invisible to the eye into the film holding the images of the sun's light. For example, fragrance, timbre, wind, heat, temperature, warmth, joy, pleasure, sadness ,fear, worry, anger, pain, comfort, or vertigo, are transmitted from the various waves all around us.

To consciously erase block out, squelch, suppress the world that is limited to that which can be confirmed by the eye.
To release myself from the knowledge or values I learned in the process of growing up.
To find pleasure in an original scene or view that I come upon by looking exclusively at the sun's light.
To make a statement by taking the waves that come into me through my five senses and transform them into a different set of waves that correspond to the emotions that come from within me.
To record on film the waves that emit from me by way of the light of the sun.

Perhaps the entire process procedure is based on a fallacy However I very much like this time that ?evokes ?hope through the power of the imagination.

In "Yuragi Taiyou " I retraced these processes over and over taking photographs while being rocked by these invisible waves and constructed them into "Sunshine Pulse" and "Sunshine volition."
In this time of such uncertainty about the future I turned my lens to the sunlight on the cherry trees that grow in the water and air of Tokyo, the place where I live.
I thought I might be able to capture myself in the photos of the cherries that are the symbol of Japan where I grew up, by exchanging the emotions and senses that were in fluctuation between the hope in the sunshine and the darkness of the insecurity sinking into modern society.
n Sunshine Volition, on the other hand, I tried to focus on an internal world now (in resistance to) an external world where one feel a wave of defeat form the sense that the balance in the environment is falling apart. With my own will I choose not to be defeated. Above all I try to I record on film the season and light that simply feel best to me.

The sky over Japan, in 2011, appears to me different now.
Indeed there is no national boundary in the sun.
