The recollections held in our minds and hearts are influenced by sentiments and feelings, and so are something different from simple memories. Recollections gradually change. An unpleasant recollection may change imperceptibly to bittersweet, and a casual memory might turn into a precious recollection. Yet while a recollection may change, the content of the recollection is never lost; it endures forever. This is because a past event is something that is already settled. Thus a recollection, though its content has been finalized, may be enigmatic in that it fluctuates.
My first visit to Tokushima a few years ago was during the time of dazzling light and fresh greenery. The light pouring down at that time gave me a sense of easygoing tranquility, while the sight of the tidal whirlpools in the Naruto Strait, an ocean phenomenon I had never before seen, gave me a sense of fearfulness – a fluctuating and yet enduring recollection. One very rarely encounters a place that harbors that sort of recollection. Still, for me, Tokushima holds such a special feeling. And I am excited to see how that might change through my participation in the Tokushima LED Art Festival 2016.

In this work, as the directionality of the light is changed from moment to moment, so the shadow shifts in perspective and size and density, changing from moment to moment. Yet the shadow never completely disappears, and returns to the same position.
