Works 作品

We have been working on the series “Jifei Kyoto”since 2015. Against the background of the profound time-space represented by stone, we can see, before our eyes, a recurrence of love in the interlay of fallen trees in the natural world. In the repetition of daily life and the never-ending flow of the Kamo River, we can know the joy of regeneration. “Jifei Kyoto” is to us both a process and an inescapable future. 
  One part of “Jifei Kyoto” is photographing trees that have fallen. There is a term “槁木死灰”,(kouboku shikai/Gǎomù sǐhuī) which means “as lifeless as cold ashes”. However, “槁木”(kouboku/Gǎomù) has a deeper meaning. It does not mean that the tree is dead, but rather that the seeming existence is a hotbed of new life and explosive rebirth. In the natural world, it is a symbol of rebirth.
  It is the sense of an existence that transcends time and space that I feel from the expression of the stones in karesansui. The ultimate form of spirituality that seems to lead directly to the universe and a surrealistic sense of the future of the earth after the natural world has died out.
