The view from the passenger seat of the car driven by my mother.
The road that I have always been accustomed to seeing was transformed into a new world by the black-and-white and negative inversion.The sky, which should have been clear, was suddenly enveloped in darkness, and what we could see was tinted white.
“yononakaha yumekautsutsuka utsutsutomo yumetomoshirazu aritenakereba” (Kokin Wakashū - 942)
A long time ago, someone wrote such a phrase.
We have no way of knowing whether the world we see is real or not.
I believe that “UNREAL/REAL" is an eternal theme for us.
I was born in 2002. I live in Sapporo, Hokkaido.
I’m enrolled in the faculty of Design, Sapporo City University.
The photographs are simply reveresed monochrome negatives and these landscapes captured from the car are very monotonous; nowhere certain, but somewhere.
