Created by the grasp of hands, it began to crumble in the midst of formation. What would remain as its traces…? is an ongoing project, which aims to raise questions about our humanities, in the epoch of Anthropocene, and create stimulating platforms for people to have dialogues with others through artistic expressions. Using my sensory senses and intuition, I collected subject matters; things we have created in the human history and matters we have discovered, relating to Earth and other planets in the universe. Choosing one subject a time from the collected subject matters, I research about it interdisciplinary, and produce work, using the research materials, visual orders and method of storytelling.
The 1st part of the project, 00_Scape, is a landscape composed of the 6000-year-old Jomon pots and self-made clay, accompanied by a recorded story of human and clay. It is a symbolic stage, resembling Earth, for the rest of the project to take place. All the materials are taken from the same spot, yet in 6000 years difference, making the landscape a hyper-time space.
