“I would like to create a work like ‘Shishi-odoshi’ utilizing lights.” His work entitled “0.04,” a physical embodiment of his words, is simple in its structure. Though it seems that the expressivity of his work is hightened only by changing the hue of lighting or positioning of the environment of his work, he opposes such a simple approach. His view, as he says, is only to highten the expressivity of his work.
Once he sees what he wants to express in his mind, he sticks to it until he reaches the perfect embodiment of his image. I’m looking forward to his next piece, embodied from such a strict attitude toward creation.
“Shishi-odoshi,” which is constructed from a bamboo tube which clack against a stone when the tube is emptied, is a general name for devices used to intimidate and drive away agriculture-damaging birds and animals. We tend to enjoy its sound and natural elegance.
