A THING / もの

Part 2 / その二

Why are we here? Where did we come from, and where we will go?’ The curiosity to glimpse the mysteries of life was my starting point. And ‘A Thing’ is an attempt at physically and intuitively gaining insights into the nature of things, through my own experiences and senses beyond intellectual understandings. To open up a perception of the world and untangle the questions by using photography as a tool. ‘A Thing’ has 2 parts. Part 1 was started in 2013 and showed; Part 1 in 2016, Part 2 in 2020.

This world is empty, yet filled with infinite resonating sounds. And the whole thing is a song passing through like a flash of memories.
