FILAMENT

1/20

きれいな空気や景色は好きだが私にとって山は頂上を目指すものではない。それでも身近な山でいいから少し山の中に入りたい時がある。そこには日常とかけ離れた世界があり、私は時折その世界にひっそりと身を置く。特に冬の山は静寂を増し、雪を踏む音や自分の服が擦れる音、シャッターを切る音、自分の呼吸する音までもがとても鮮明に聞こえてくる。日常の生活から一気に余分な情報が削ぎ落とされ、意識は自然と研ぎ澄まされてくる。その感覚が好だ。そんな中、いつもの場所でいつもの樹々が、ある日突然に独特の造形美を見せてくれた。それはまるで天文学や宇宙論におけるフィラメントをも私に彷彿させるものだった。勿論、樹々はいつものようにただ静かにそこにあるだけだ。しかし一度見付けると次から次へといろんな造形が現れ始めた。そして私はそれら樹々の造形をより顕著にする為に色を削ぎモノクローム化して写真に収め始めた。

I like mountains, fresh air and scenery. But for me, there is no need to aim for the top of the mountain. A nearby mountain is enough. There is a times when I want to enter inside of the mountain just a little. Because entering inside of the mountain just a little, there is a world far from everyday life. Sometimes I want to settle down quietly in that other world. Especially the winter mountain is extremely quiet. The sounds of walking on fallen leaves and snow, of the fabric of my clothes rubbing together, and even of my breathing, are all very clear. For me, it is very pleasant. Extra information is removed at once from everyday life. My consciousness is sharpened naturally. That sense is good. At such time, the mountain trees showed me unique shaping beauty. It reminds me of filaments in astronomy and cosmology. Those are just being there. However, once I found it,became visible from next to next.Then in order to make the shaping of trees more prominent, I started shaving colors and to monochrome them and put them in the photograph.
