Sound and Voice
echoing one another
I spent more time living away from my hometown in Tokyo, Hokkaido, etc. than I did in my hometown. When I was alone in my bedroom, I was genuinely conscious of the vacant lots, grass, sand, insects, trees, and other things in my parents' neighborhood. I was grateful, though not to anyone. And my tiredness, which was akin to confusion, disappeared. The photographs used for the collage were taken and printed by myself, then cut and pasted together. The photos are a combination of where I live now and my hometown and its vicinity. The only way the combination would work was if I relied on my memory. There, something like the scenery I thought of in my bedroom is involved.
