木々、風、日光、刹那(1) が風景とともに、相互作用することによって形成される光と影の動き。日本人はこの出来事を表す独特の言葉「こもれび」を持っています。








The movement of light and shadows formed by the interplay of trees, wind , sunlight and Setsuna (1) on the landscape. The Japanese have unique word “komorebi” to describe this natural phenomenon.


*There is no similar word other than Japanese. This Artwork title is the English translation of “Komorebi”.

*The “komorebi” projected on the ground has the same round shape as the sun, and is not affected by the shape of the gaps between the leaves where the sunlight enters. This is the same principle as a pinhole camera.

(1) “Setsuna” is Japanese pronounce of Ksana (see note 2).

(2)[ Ksana (setsuna) = 0.013 seconds]

In Buddhism, they use a Sanskrit word “ksana” to measure time, which is a tiny unit of time.  Such a small amount of time that all kinds of things happen eludes our conscious awareness.  And this amount of time is approximately one seventy-fifth of a second, i.e. 0.013s.  In each 0.013 second (= ksana),  “Born, Live, Die” loop cycles keep recurring in human consciousness in one Ksana = 0.013 second.
