  • Biography

    The era we are living in is filled with richness.  Convenient products are endlessly coming out, and information we want or do not want to know about is flooding.  Things to eat, listen to, and play with can always be found anywhere. However, people still say they feel solitary and lonely in this time of plenty.  I thought about where the loneliness they feel comes from.

    Loneliness is a feeling people have when they feel they lost something crucial about themselves.  Feeling lonely when somebody is absent does not just mean that ‘someone’ is absent, but ‘someone who understands me’ is absent.  From time to time, people with their families or lovers who understand them well feel lonely as well. Because even if others can understand us well, they still cannot understand as much as we do ourselves.  Therefore, we need time to confront ourselves in order to overcome a feeling of loneliness. However, it is not easy to have such time for people today.

    The work 'A Chair on the Tree' began with finding a space where people who feel tired and lonely can rest and think about themselves for a moment.

    (The space should not be taking a lot of time and money.  Instead, it should be a space that can always be found anywhere and make people forget about this busy and relentless world.)

    I place a little chair on the tree on the street or in the little urban forest or in the distant mountain.  Then I take a piece of mind and place it on the chair. It is fine whether it is a windy or rainy, cool or dark night.  Although this space seems a bit precarious and lonesome, I hope that you can look up at the sky at times and take a time to feel the passing wind by yourself.  Even spending a brief time is fine. It will be time for you to confront yourself whenever wherever you are. It will be a little comfort for you if you are feeling lonely.
