déjà vu phenomenon

The Side

Here and there in this town, dilapidated townhouses have been demolished and vacant lots have emerged. On the outer wall of the building facing the vacant lot, traces of the roof of the neighboring house that once existed are carved, suggesting the daily activities that may have been carried out under that roof. With the passage of time, its traces fade, and when a new building is built there, it disappears from sight. Eventually, the wall that marked the traces will also be dismantled, and it will surely disappear from people's memories. In the past few years, I have captured such scenes in photographs as a ``typology for traces of gabled roofs''. In this exhibition, the interior of a KYO-MACHIYA built 90 years ago is reproduced in CG, and the "traces of the gabled roof" are composited into the FUSUMA that separates the tatami rooms. Scenes seen someday and real scenes, CG fake images and real images, these intersect. (159 words)
