|Beyond the View
Contemporary Art OKAYAMA ２０１２ Exhibition
First, there is my photo.
Then I show it to someone and ask her/him to put it down on paper.
After that, I shoot it and turn it to a photo again.
What is shown there is an invisible view.
I think the saying, "A picture is worth a thousand words."
is not always true. In the little Prince of Sain-Exupe`ry the Fox says "What is essential is invisible to the eye"
I couldn`t agree with him more.
The world is filled with "unnatural" things with innocent look.
They aren`t totally lies but have assimilated into "natural" things.
"Beyond the View", I think it means we see what the world is like with not only the eye but the mind.
I want you to imagine what are described by these passages.
I think the pictures which come to your mind are true.
I thank for being given the opportunity to create my pieces based on this theme.
I also think S.Tomo, a painter/poet for turning my photos into writing.
