作品解説子供の頃、原っぱや教室でシャボン玉を吹く人々を見かけると、シャボン玉がはじけることなく一面いっぱいになったらいいのにと願った思い出に由来する作品です。

A child’s consciousness is always filled with curiosity and wonder. They express the wildest and most unrealistic perspectives that we, jaded adults, tend to brush aside as child’s talk. Conversely, this innocence inherent in their person, pure and can easily be shattered, is what makes our distant childhood as adults nostalgic.

We are reminded by children of the temporariness of our own juvenility. We realize that along the way it just disappeared, completely escaping our notice. As we grow older, any opportunity to relive these lost moments only becomes increasingly blissful.

This piece entitled, ‘’Do Not Pop!’’ stemmed from an unfulfilled childhood sentiment with an intention of reliving it. Often encountering people blowing bubbles in grass fields or classrooms, there is always this futile wish where these bubbles would just fill up the space without popping. The laws of physics however, is in constant disagreement with the notion.

By using hollow glass spheres, solid and stationary transparent spheres can be collected in a glass box to simulate the experience of being in the presence of bubbles. An experience that is a little less fleeting.

For viewers
I am presenting this piece in hopes of rekindling every viewer’s childhood. I offer it as visual evidence of the fulfillment of at least just one wish.

For children
Growing up can be really taxing physically, mentally, and emotionally. But amidst this burden, having a childhood to look back on to will keep you sane. Maximize this childhood until you have no regrets and learn to visualize so it stays with you when you’re older.
