The fact that a idol which is made by CG create a sensation make us consider that 'existing' in the real world would not be so important. At the same time, the common awareness that a photograph shows truth is being changed by diminishing the important role 'recording' which is photograph originally has. I'm making creations by changing drawing into photographic negatives and remove the image to a photographic paper with some light. Through the light the image is divided dark and light and unnatural reality will appear. I'm creating private world which of the relation between reality and unreality is rarefied. Even it is private world it might not necessarily be fiction in reality. I'm trying to consider again the meaning of 'existing' from the world in the narrow space between reality and unreality.
