Falling Torrent 瀑布奔流 

大徳寺聚光院 所蔵 

The collection of the Daitokuji-Temple, Jukouinn

I wanted to express multi-phased changes of the different part of the same waterfall. Their faces are reflecting between the shape of rocks and the volume and the speed of running water. It could be changed each module of water fall, and even will produce so call a – ion.

Mt. Fuji in twilight

Mt. Fuji in twilight

Mt. Fuji turned red in the setting sun. It’s Red, but turned in many colors of red and layers in twilight. Turning never stops in a second. Sometimes, It reminds me of what my life has been. I feel life is long and short and always in motion and never comes back
to the same position and moment in our life. (Jan.1/2018)

a pond in fresh foliage

A pond in fresh foliage

I found a really mysterious pond in the deep forest. I believe that this one did not exist in the map when I checked the route before I started.
The surface of this pond is reflecting foliage green surrounding the pond.
I could not distinguish the true color between water and the surrounding foliage. (Jan.1/2018)

light and shadow

Light and Shadow

One day, I watched a strange phenomenon on the wall of the teahouse in Kamakura. It was a single light bulb beside a wall. The wall was lighted by this single bulb but one more shadow bulb appeared next to it on the wall. Of course, this shadow bulb has been reflected by the other light source from the sunbeam. After the moment, I had noticed one more shadow, which was a reflection of that shadow. I was convinced that Light and shadow are reflecting each other and does not mean they are separate. (Jan.1/2018)

clock hands

What a clock shows with its hands.

Time is shown on a clock by the minute and hour. 
The stream of time flows from the past to the present and into the future, 
and this direction is an irreversible change and never going back. 
So, I have one question. What is a clock showing with its hands now?

A distorted building

I found a distorted building in neat rows on the street in Ginza. The scene looks unusual, which I have never seen before but soon after the second, I noticed that there is something interesting.
We have adopted so-called “normal” or “general” but there is no absolute standard sensibly accepted by all. I don’t know how this distorted building will be accepted 50 years later but It’s interesting and something new in Ginza. (Jan.1/2018)

Round Window

A round window

Normally, the window shape is square in the western style architecture. I think that the reason is very simple. It’s a practical. However if you see it from a different angle, they can take any shape. For example, the window of the tea room use a round or deformed square shape. The meaning of deformed square is that each corner is not perpendicular but somewhat round. This shape may not be practical but it represents the spirit of tea ceremony, in that the tea master will accept anyone who wishes to enter the teahouse. (Jan.1/2018)
