- #3 Looking up at the clouds -

issue008_column05_body001
6 years ago in September,
The clouds, blown by the winds from the South to the West, was not broadening anymore and telling the end of the summer.
With confidence that I was able to see this sunset soon, I ran up in the Carrot Tower.

March and September’s skies in Tokyo are my favorite.
They are consist of multi-layered clouds and show me various faces.
7 years ago in March, at the day before the Great East Japan Earthquake, the rounded and peaceful clouds were floating in the sky.
They represented like the past we couldn’t return, and the future we vaguely expected.
After that, I tied the Sun and the core, and became thinking the scheme of humans.

In this coming September, I was in Netherlands to be following after the clouds .
Even though the windmill that Ruysdael drew changed to the wind turbine, there were still unchanging the sky and lights.
However, even the place where the look of the sky kept changing had the sunny weather everyday because of the abnormal climate in the rest of my shooting.

The Sun makes and shapes the clouds.
Without the Sun, the clouds cannot exist, but the variety of the clouds is the one, which represents the variety of this world.
