I am searching for a language to express the present. There is a Japanese word called “Fuekiryuko” (unchanging prevalence) and my goal is to conduct a think tank-like research on the word “ryuko” (prevalence). As a visual artist, I am looking for universal values that don’t change with human technology and technique.
These values transcend through generations, like the human traits, actions, changes in emotions present in Dostoevsky and Natsume Soseki’s novels.
These personal experiences, which words cannot explain, is also known as qualia (quality). At times, however, Qualia can be a shared experience. This invisible line is what excites me. My aim is to create art that explores the shared boundaries of self and other environments.
There are indeed many ways to do so, but I want to devote time to develop and bring out beauty and human qualities that are universal. The process of doing so is a timeless experience.
