The work on the theme "relationship between one and one", base on relationship between the director and his old mother.
The work start from the scene of membrane of cloth balloon to 10m in diameter, gaze at human being in various perspective such as the screen printed a lot of aerial photographs, the projector which moving left and right and real-time close-up video image.
While the plot is unfolding with the motif man/woman, face, loneliness/touching and life/death, the bodies of performers become bare instinctively.
We probed new viewpoint to see the performers on the stage like to see documentary.
I have mother who is 44 years older than me. After her sickness, when I see her old face, I'm conscious the fact that she is old and will be dead. And at same time, I remain that I'm here because she is living here. I'm weltering by the waves which is connected from me to her and older ages continuously... That waves is lengthening to future, too.
The relationship between me and her made me sharpen, and it updated my viewpoint to feel incredible amount of informations from the people around me.
I awaked that all of the people has the waves of ages. It gave me both the beauty and the creeps. The world is weltering by unimaginable abundance of the waves.
I re-acknowledge the people to the living monuments.
I'm recalling myself.
