A photo exhibition “The Photograph” took place.
When people close their eyes going to sleep at night, various sights appear in the back of the eyelids. Things that shine brightly and things that fly like a shooting star…
They also explode at certain times. An artist draws such sights that pass away immediately, shoots it, and we see the next different sight.
For this work, I drew afterimages and designs of the back of the eyelids when I closed my eyes on a wooden board that is 2.4 meters high and 2 meters wide with paint and recorded it to a photograph. Then I repeated this process many times.
Photographers usually have a “desire to photograph what has not been seen before” as one of their lifeworks. This work that was not able to express it if I did not use photography became a thing that embodied “that desire.”
The digital photo book is available to order in advance at the Kindle store now.
