Location: Nerima-ku, Tokyo, Japan
As I was an actor, this works uses the theatricality of the models to depict the diversity, choices, possibilities, and hidden stories that people have.
The stories are based on what I perceive in my daily life and on episodes I have researched and extracted from the models. I take the images and then I shoot them one by one while staging them. I would direct the models as if I were directing an actor on stage, for example, communicating with yourself on the other side, or having a conversation.
Most of the models are people who are actual physical performers. This is because, as evidenced by the fact that they can set up a narrative world on an empty stage, their Because the power of imagery is so strong and there are so many possibilities out there. I believe that.
That power makes it possible to interact with oneself in another timeline that doesn't physically exist, to tell a story that didn't actually happen, and theatricality, which is communication through this image, creates a screen that contains many different things as a single piece that is not just a composite.
People have a rich imagination. I think it is also the power to feel and love people from various aspects.
In this day and age when information is so easy to obtain and we often assume it is correct, I feel that we need the ability to imagine others and oneself.This work also expresses and gives form to my respect for theater people who devote their souls to a form of theater that has never been left behind.
