 “ Line 線” (English statement is below the Japanese

『線』 = ものの考えや、行動の方向性や、道筋。という言語解釈も含め、以下のプロセスによる空間構築。
点から点への最短線=直線を紙の上に描きます。短時間に描く行為・何千枚もの紙の上で、 繰り返されるこの動作は、行動の方向性と、 刹那=0.013 秒という時間軸を説くことになります。(仏教思想では『刹那』=時間を表す最小単位。 1 刹那とは、およそ75/1 秒=0.013 秒です。) それは 、意識的に感じ取る事の難しい短い時間ですが、この世のすべての生命が、誕生、生と死=生成消滅のサイクルを、この一刹那ごとに無限に繰り返ししていると説かれています 。
次に、直線のある紙を、くしゃくしゃにします。 描かれた直線=点から点への最短線の間 に、不規則な点が現れる=人生における紆余曲折のあることを意味します。くしゃくしゃになる事は、破壊ではなく、直線を曲線へ・平面を立体に、単純で穏やかなはずの時間の流れが、現代社会の複雑さを生む様を、比喩し、視覚化するプロセスです。
描き、滅す・・・・が、刹那ごとに繰り返され、過ぎた刹那の痕跡が既に残る空間の壁面、天井、床を無常に埋めます。物事の無常性と、 自己を含む刹那生滅の概念を含めて、 オーディエンスがそれらを、体感経験できるインスタレーションです。

Line is a performative installation that incorporates a transformation from 2D drawing to 3D installation.

We are repeating the endless cycle of birth, life and death each ksana (setsuna), every 0.013second

Line as a manner of thinking…

First act is of drawing a simple straight line on paper, the shortest distance between one point and another, in one quick short stroke. This action, repeated thousands of times on thousands of sheets of paper represents the axis of “ksana” (“setsuna”), a moment. In Buddhism, the Sanskrit word ksana is a measure of time (setsuna in Japanese). It is approximately one seventy-fifth of a second, i.e. 0.013s, such a small amount of time that it eludes our conscious awareness. It is believed that the cycle of birth, life and death recurs endlessly within the space of one ksana.

The next act is crumpling the paper. This process, halfway to destruction, creates additional irregular points along the drawn lines. This crumpling alludes to the infinitely complicated dealings or circumstances that always happen in the relatively tiny period of a human life circulation. But if there is a moment of spreading that crumpled paper, we might realise that the straight line can be multiply reshaped; that the crumpling is not destructive, but part of a process that ultimately allows a straight line to be reborn as a curve; that we can conceptualise “Anicca” (impermanence), the Buddhist belief that all things, including the self, are impermanent and constantly changing.
