Summary of Project:

“Without noticing, I started to take photographs in their private space. Soon, I discovered the possibility of floating in between, the boundary, such as above and below or in the middle from the session. While we erect bipedal, while our above has the sky and below has the ground, while we meet the next day after our sleep or while the power holders control the power, I want to trigger the glimpse of resistance in this midst of these fragile world by the floats. Hollowed eyes and opened hair on the floor seemed dreamlike. My Ukiyo accept all the principals, right and left, up and down and enjoy the moment despite the death ahead of us. I leave their flexible spirits to Ukiyo, the floating world to be able to swim across within this fluctuated world.”
