作品解説1.出品作品コンセプト

OriginはBig Bangから始まったとされる「時間」と「空間」をテーマにした私のBig Bang Symphonyを構成するシリーズの1つです。
水の惑星地球、海は生命の源、生命はおよそ40億年前に誕生したと言われています。その源である“水”とともに40億年の時空を石の中に封印する。
多くの参加者を募り地球上のさまざまな地域から“水”(海水、淡水)を採取、石に参加者の思いのある地の“水”を封印、WEBサイトのGoogle My Mapsに採取地の写真、メッセージ等を記載する。
現在、海洋のマイクロプラスチックごみ問題が深刻化しています。
人類の未来、地球上の生命に関わる問題です。
私はこの作品を通して人類、地球、環境、時空、、、、、、等に想いを馳せて欲しい。
我々はかけがえのない水の惑星地球に住んでいる。

"Origin" forms a part of my series, Big Bang Symphony. It centers "time" and "space", which are said to have started with the Big Bang.
The Earth, the planet of water, is home to the oceans, where life is formed. Life is said to have come into existence about four billion years ago. We are going to seal the space-time spanning four billion years and water, the origin of life, in a stone.
The project invites participants to collect "water" (seawater and freshwater) from different places on the Earth, seal the "water" they are particularly attached to in a stone, and upload images of the place where the water is collected, together with messages, etc., on Google My Maps.
Currently, our oceans suffer severe microplastic pollution. It is a problem that affects the survival of humans and all life forms on the Earth.
Through my work, I want people to stop for a while and think about humankind, the Earth, the environment, the time-space… and so on. The planet we live is the Earth, the one and only planet of water.
