Collar which falls from ka ruffle

 Contrast of color is everyday difference in city and is sense of incongruity for the world,
It is boundary line itself. There is that only on the surface that only light colors pile up.
 Own reality by to rebuild colorful personal daily life, appear.
 Colorful act that we likened to city colors daily life colorfully, but it is violent so as to be superabundant, and there is weakness that is disorder nevertheless at the same time.
 In Sapporo Station where people come and go, we think that we can let such a pop "danger" appear.

■Comment of writer
At the age of university, there is time when we climbed mountain almost every week.
When we walked dangerous footing (rocky way) in Daisetsuzan, mark of arrow is marked with spray with red spray to rock for guidepost of mountain trail with kukkiri, and vividness of the color remains in impression strangely. As for the man-made bright color that we found in the mountain, it is prototypical experience that oneself has begun to use colorful color for.
Own production activity is managed from picture and two two wheelses called installation.
Picture work often does image that searched by PC and own past memory and admiration in motif.
We use many quotation, coTague of pattern design and image of dot and stripe and it is colorful for image and is work building on the plane violently.
We produce installation piling up colorful plastic by approach that is different from such a picture. Plastic structure where it is in moment of is managed on exquisite balance such as building block while being colorful, constructing temporarily is own reality itself to repeat daily life of copy & paste.
Strength/weakness that colorful color has, violence-related/temporary construction characteristics continue hiding behind in daily life.
In addition, act piling up plastic is one of the methods to tie oneself past and oneself current.
Building block play in the days of child is Lego blocking, and idle memory revives.
It was all equivalent in toy box and was a series of choice, and story existed only in oneself, too.
There is impulse to want to keep the moment when both picture work and installation work were lost (they seem to be lost) when we think so. Because we want to share the sense, we may put the thought in pop color.
