statement

   I presented this work first in the Atelier A.I.R in the Czech republic, Brno, in the year 2012. The following year I recreated it for the dance performance of the Butoh dancer Minoru Hideshima as a stage background. 
   Continuing with the theme of time of my previous work, "Someday, that place in time" where I captured the "Disunity of time", in "Stargazer" I concentrated on the "Celestial time (the movement of stars)" and the "Unified city time (tolling of the church bells)" as the main themes of the work. I created reflecting surfaces from mirror shards put together into flowershaped plates. These I attached to little clocks no bigger than 10 square centimeters and pointed a small spotlight on each "mirror flower". The "mirror flower" would move together with the clockneedle and reflect the light from the spotlight onto the ceiling. In the darkness of the room, the diffused reflection of light danced on the ceiling like stars in the night sky. The irregular shape of mirror shards created irregular light reflections, but the movement of the "stars" was regular due to the steady ticking of the clocks, creating an "Order inside of Chaos".

 本作は2012年にチェコ共和國ブルノのA.I.Rにて最初の発表を行い、翌年には舞踏家秀島実の舞台美術として公開を行った。自作"Someday, that place in time." で制作した「不揃いな時間」を継承しつつ、「天体の時間(星の巡り)」と「街のひとつの時間(教会の鐘)」をテーマにインスタレーションとして作品化した。小さな時計の上に「割れた鏡」で花弁を模した光の受け皿をつくり、そこに小さなスポットライトを当て、光が空間内を周遊する仕組みを拵えた。暗がりの部屋を巡る光の乱反射は「規則性をもった不規則な形」としてインスタレーションとなった。
