The way someone sees the same scene can change based on the weather or the time of day.
By recording one moment, the photograph is used as a motif.
Whether it is projected on a physical photograph or through someone’s eye, light is the most important thing.
I think this can be applied to creating movies, which I’ll continue to do.
When using motifs, I take one part of the background from a picture and draw it.
Using this small finished part of the world, I want to create works where light is overflowing.
