I fastened wandering figures and sequins on the painted forests and mountains.
"The World" is a piece of video art, in which these pictures are melting, so the fastened objects fall down and disappear. This piece questions our perception, how we think we "know" something in our lives today in the information society. It questions the existence of the reality of all of us, who are living in this vague world. These pieces weren’t generated in the computer; the melting pictures are real drawings which were melted and recorded on camera. This process was repeated and only a part of the many recordings was actually chosen. This piece is searching for perceptions of "real or surreal" or "uncertainty of reality" and it’s also an attempt to find the boundaries between me and the world, from the past, since the original (the drawing) has already disappeared and no longer exists.

森や山を描いた舞台にハイキングをしていたり遊んでいたりする人形やスパンコールを貼付ける。「The World」のシリーズは、これらのイメージが溶けて流れ、貼付けられたオブジェが落ちて消えていく、という映像作品である。情報社会の中で生きる私たちが「知っている(と思っている)」感覚について問いかけ、あいまいな世界の中で生きる私たちのリアリティの所在について問いかけている。これらの作品は、CGではなく実際に絵を描いては溶かすという行程と撮影を何度も繰り返し、撮影された沢山の映像素材の中からワンテイクだけを選択し作品化する、という方法によって制作されている。「現実や非現実」や「リアリティの不確かさ」といった視点の追求と、オリジナル(描いた絵画)が消失し現存しないという儚さから、僕と世界との境界を探ろうとする試みである。
