Dancing with the darkness_01

Camphor tree
240x12x12 cm

Stand back and look at a forest or a tree from a distance.

There are shadows in the gaps between the leaves and branches, an infinity of points of darkness.

While we sense the life force in a forest or a tree,

we also sense the presence of death in these infinite bits of darkness.

In the light there is darkness. In life there is death.

Creating form from darkness.

Here I present the forms that that action has created.

 

森や木から距離をとって眺めてみる

葉や枝の隙間が影になり、無数の闇を見せる

森や木からは生命力を感じるのに

その無数の闇が少なからず死を内包している様に感じる

光は闇を含み、生は死を含む事と同じなのかもしれない

闇によってカタチを作る

その行為が作り出したカタチをここに提示してみる
