1. Appreciation method
The picture forest suspended from this ceiling can be freely accessed from anywhere.
Enter from the place of the viewer's choosing, see a few pictures, imagine the story, and leave.
You can see the pictures in any order.
Viewers who enter this space are free to explore the forest of pictures, free from the rules of viewing. Then, the story is created according to the route selected by oneself.
Sometimes the story will be completed with just three pictures. At other times, more than 100 pictures may be spun out.
The “force of the wind”, “unexpected discovery”, “encounter with time”, “encounter with space”, “imagination” and “cute” bring about “concon cute” by chance.
2. What is "concon cute"?
"Kawaii" is a word born in Japan. I think "kawaii" has "power" in its words and concepts.
In a general interpretation, "kawaii" is the opposite of "power".
However, I believe that "cuteness" has the power to make people happy, happy, and cheerful regardless of race, age, or gender.
To explain to people living in an area that does not have the word "kawaii" in an easy-to-understand manner,
For example, when I look at a baby, I think it's similar to the feeling of being “unnatural” that everyone feels.
That feeling is common throughout the world, and I think it is a feeling that exceeds the human species.
It is clear from scientific research and historically that even animals of different races feel that creatures are instinctively "cute."
For example, raising abandoned babies by using different species of animals as parents. There is a "power" that fascinates creatures across species.
I was based on the idea that "human imagination" and "kawaii" will become common communication tools in the future world.
I will send my art and new concepts to the world as "concon cute".
3. To understand the work
Everyone can easily understand and enjoy art, regardless of language, knowledge, or wealth.
And by seeing my work, I feel kind.
That is what I am aiming for and what the work expresses.
My work, "Imagination's fun and concon cute "Risu no Seisei"" is not only a picture book, but at the same time the viewer sees the art and the viewer can experience it.
It is a work that allows you to "imagine" a variety of stories and have a "gentle feeling" towards others.
With the spread of coronavirus and various restrictions on the world, what is needed for this world
Kindness and compassion.
This is a fusion of picture books and art that is easy for everyone to understand and enjoy, regardless of age, language or individual ability.
It is an art work that everyone can feel cheerful and cheerful by biological intuition.
This will help peace across the world across various barriers.
Since it is a picture book, there is an original story.
However, this work allows viewers to uniquely combine pictures and think of new lines to "imagine" and enjoy the original story.
In the original picture book, even if it is a story, the possibilities are endless if the language is excluded as art and it is contained in one piece of work.
This work accepts viewers indiscriminately.
And the viewer truly becomes the only story and completes the work.
We embody the fusion of "the imagination that people have" and "cute" picture books.
4. Display method
The actual work expresses the forest of the squirrel's work by hanging it with a string on a picture rail placed on the ceiling of the venue.
The submitted photos of the work are a reproduction of the work display in a limited space of my personal life and are actually more wonderful.
