Plastic Reincarnation (2016~2017)  

This project is consists of made photographs taken in Japan and Russia using disposable film camera and was inspired during the Shikoku pilgrimage to 88 temples. The short lifespan of the camera led to the idea of a virtual multiple experience of life and death. A plastic lens was used as a substitute, as it is recycled and passes the gaze of several people. A set number of shutters as a mantra. A pilgrimage to the emptiness, stripping away the colours that float in and out like bubbles. Scooping up water from a river that will never flow the same way again, I try to be aware of the ephemeral things that spill from between my fingers.

本作はレンズ付きフィルム(使い捨てカメラ)で日本・ロシアで撮られた写真で構成され、八十八ケ所の寺院をめぐる四国遍路の最中に着想が得られた。カメラの寿命が短いことで、生と死を仮想的に何度も経験しようとした。リサイクルされることで、何人もの人の視線を通すプラスチックレンズを依代に。決められた回数のシャッターをマントラに。泡のように浮かんでは消える色をはぎ取り、ついに空へと至る巡礼。二度と同じ流れに入ることができない川の水を掬いとり、指の間からこぼれ落ちる儚いものに意識を傾けてみる。
