電 車の到着を待っている時、バスの車内で座っている時、歩いている時、食事をしている時、寝ている時、買い物をしている時、郵便桶を見ている時、もしくはぼ んやりしている時等の日常生活が私の作品のテーマです。時折、リストを作るときもありますし、写真を撮影する事もあります。その他には、迷惑メール、レ シート、請求書、封筒、包装紙、写真、パンフレットの残骸を集める事もあります。日常の中に新しい自分の発見に期待して、日常の生活に注意を払っていま す。私達はいつも日頃の生活の上下にのみ注意を払っていますが、日常のありふれた行動に時間を多く費やします。日常のありふれた行動を見直す事によって物 事に対して新たな視点を持つ事が出来るのです。

My work focuses on the everyday whether it is waiting for a train, sitting on a bus, walking, eating, sleeping, grocery shopping, checking mail, or daydreaming.  These are activities that we all do but do not always think about. 

Sometimes I make lists.  Sometimes I take photographs.  Other times,  I collect remnants―junk mail, receipts, bills, envelopes, packaging, photographs, and brochures. I focus on the everyday hoping it might reveal something new about myself.  We spend so much time focused on the ups and downs of life, but most of our time is spent doing these everyday activities.  Exploring the everyday is an opportunity for a different perspective on our lives as human beings in this contemporary world.

  1. Just finished reading umberto eco’s “the infinity of lists” – I think you would enjoy it! I look forward to more of your work on this site. Cheers!

  2. Thanks for the recommendation! Since it is looks to be a fairly large book, I’ll have to see if I can find a copy at a bookstore or library to browse through. In the middle of fellowship/proposal applications so my posts have been few and far between. Hope to catch everyone up soon!
