The Thinking Piece 展は終了しましたが、作品販売は5月15日まで @place_by_method ウェブサイトで継続中。Bamboo Lattice Light は販売額の75%をウクライナ危機の人道支援のため寄付します。

今できること、これからの未来に向けてやるべきことを考えながら今回の展示に参加しています。日々の生活において家族のため、自分のため、愛する人のために仕事や創作に取り組むことが小さな風を起こし、やがて遠く離れた誰かの後押しになることを願い動き続けていきたいと思います。
個展で「思ったより大きいんですね」と言われることが結構あったので、人と一緒に写した写真をアップ。作品のサイズ感は古道具に依るけれど、道具の存在感を際立たせるバランスを意識しています。ある意味、家具というより彫刻的なイメージでデザインしているところもあります。機能的彫刻とでもいうような。

個展は昨日5月8日で終了しました。今回も、友人や新しい出会いなど様々な人たちが来てくれました。そこで得た気づきやアイデアを次の作品へと活かしていきたいと思います。会期中にお越しいただきました皆さま、ありがとうございます!

I have had people tell me that the actual work is larger than they imagined, so  posting photos that gives a sense of scale with me. Although the size of the piece depends on the old tools, I’m conscious of the balance to highlight the presence of the tools. In that sense, the design is more like a sculpture than a piece of furniture. It’s say Functional sculpture.

My solo exhibition ended yesterday, May 8.
Once again, a variety of people came to see, friends and new encounters. I would like to apply the insights and ideas I gained from this time to my next works.
Thank you to everyone who came during the exhibition!

I’m participating the exhibition because this is one of the things I can do for the world today. It may be a small thing, but it is something that must be done. And I know I always have to think about what I should do.

===============================
“The Thinking Piece” is a non-profit platform that encourages designers to support various social issues and creates for communication. This activities were launched in spring this year, led by writer @tt0 and a design studio we+ (@hokutoando & @toshiya__hayashi ).
The starting point was the ongoing military attack on Ukraine, and refugees and suffers in there need support. We, as a designer, must face this situation, and think about how we commit such social issues and take action for it.
The first project of “The Thinking Piece” is an exhibition, and sells designer works by around 15 domestic and international designers, with the proceeds donated to humanitarian aid in Ukraine and neighboring countries.

川底を転がりやがてたどり着いた河原でそれは「いし」になる。そのさまざまな形や質感は「時の流れ」を表す一つの現象。石の纏う「ある場所、ある時の余韻」を抽出することを意図し和紙で象ったのはただそこに漂う「いし」です。
