The Dawn


Beauty may exist at places beyond our control. It is an overwhelming wonder, and the primary beauty may exist in a state where our ability to process information cannot reach.

Our body has undergone various evolutionary processes to reach its present state. It has preserved memories from when it was an animal, when it was a fish, and when it was an earlier invertebrate. The more we go back, the more we can understand the connections we have with such creatures. We can realize that humans are not separate from other creatures.

Maybe it’s because I often went to a swimming pool when I was little boy, I like being surrounded by water. That weightlessness, moderate water pressure, and the muffled sounds in the water helped release my body and consciousness from the everyday world. It was as if I could remember that humans came from the sea.

It is believed that the sea is the place where living organisms originated. According to anatomist and embryologist Shigeo Miki, our ancestors were a type of sea squirt, which was the prototype design for organisms with internal organs like a mouth-like entrance and an exit such as an anus. The fluctuation of seawater created the peristaltic movement of the internal organs, which developed into the rhythm of the heart’s “beating”. From a macro perspective, the fluctuation of seawater is caused by the force of attraction generated by the positional relationship between the earth and the moon, which are brought about by planetary activities such as rotations and orbital motion. It sounds so grandiose, but the rhythm that resonates in us is influenced by external factors.It is generally believed that “about 70% of our body is made of water”, so the fluid dynamics caused by water are also related to our body structure. The configuration of human internal organs, animal bones, horns, and plants is a metamorphosis of water flow movement. They were formed from the movement of water, which has plasticity.

The movement of water creates rhythms, which can be traced back to the waves of the sea. The movement of the waves which resembles earth’s blood circulation repeatedly collapses and reforms infinitely, and the same moment never appears again. Underneath, it carries the diverse similarities and structural connections of this world.
