The field of “Dreams” that we see at night is like ocean depths or universe that spread endlessly.
I love the deep black world here wrapped in tranquility.
I feel that the “mutual memory” human have been forgotten exists there, and it reminds me that through a transparent line, we are connected to the outside of the universe.
In a hectic life, we humans tend to forget this delicate esthesia.
That is why in everyday meditation and sleep or dream, I search for unconscious field counting on my primitive sensations.

There is a myriad of fantasy creatures wearing soft light and dancing in a voluptuous way.
For me, “production” is an act of reproducing their images and energy that is full of vitality carefully by tracing them.

I touch the clay, I move my fingers and focus my mind shaping it as if I bring life to it.
Perhaps, the “”mutual memory”” is something that I might not know eternally. However, I believe that the action to continue pursuing it is essential, and this is what art is.
