■ Opened to the public at the exhibition!
First of all, I have to say I don’t need to add any more wording to this…
This work was photographs for the exhibition held in September ’22 at the “愁篇ノスタルジア” exhibition, and the work that was released there was also released on the web.
However, the content is intended to be enjoyed with the novel in the book “Individuality and Emergence Properties” published at the same time. And the novel is based on the Japan subcultural culture (?) of the last decade. You can’t understand it unless you’re fully immersed in it, and the number of the book sold is less than 10.
In other words, even though this work is published on the Internet in this way, there are probably only a few people who really “see” them, even if it is widespread. And for people who can “see”, there is no need for afterthought.
Therefore, it can be said that this work is based on the theme of a kind of “public key cryptography”.
So I may have to add this sentence followed: You did not get the point if you claimed like this, “no matter how much I looked at these photos, I did not feel the slightest ‘Sense of a work of Art'”.
It’s a work of Contemporary Art Photography, I’d like to tell you.
