Early morning in the fresh air, wakes me up with a pleasant sound while striking the stone with a hammer and a chisel, and then, I feel the stone resisting me strongly. Always at this moment, I strongly feel that I am alive. I wanted to make the sculpture which would surprise people.
Natural disaster is occurring frequently these days, and that makes me think deeply about 'feeling alive' once again. There are some people who couldn't stay alive even though he/she wanted to live, or people who had to give up on the things he/she wanted to do. I consider that
staying alive is to recognize self-identity strongly.
I made the sculpture which could 'feel alive' by seeking the form in the powerful nature using the stone.
