Life Through Holes

​Installation

​Graduation work

​2021

この作品は、プラスチック製品の表面を微細な穴で埋め尽くすことで、身の回りの日用品が光の細胞を纏い”生命”を宿した様を通して、日常生活を静観するものである。
繊細で根気を要する工程ながら、制作を通じて手間と時間をかけることで、顧みなかった日常の光景が輝きだした。その姿は私たちに現代においてのモノと人との関係の在りかたを問うている。

The grains of light in this work are the result of filling the surface of the objects with minute holes.

I was fascinated by the way inorganic plastic products gained a new breath of life through the formation of light cells.

The result of devoting myself to a delicate and persistent task, I realized how much I had been surrounded by plastic products in our life.

Plastic is in the spotlight as the material marginalized in environmental issues.

 

The mutation from the expressionless plastic materials that we see in everyday life, the reflection of light on the plastic that has got a sense of life, and the fragility of the plastics that has been deformed by heat and are full of holes.  I have realized that materials could be created to be something beautiful.  And I have felt that strange attachment can be developed.

we may be able to reduce unnecessary waste by looking at inexpensive and easily available mass-produced products to be reused and loved for a long time, rather than just to consume in a short time.

Plastic's light cells illuminate the hidden values in our modern lives.

 Some people tend to forget their attachment to things in a mass-consumption society. I hope that they are interested in how they should relate to things and share that attitude with others.

 I am trying to fill holes in everything around me asking myself what is the true richness in the way we interact with things.
