entre chien et loup

The Japanese term "tasogare-ki" is a corruption of the Japanese term "who are you? In Japan, the word "who are you" is a corruption of "who are you", and the time is called "twilight time". In France, the evening twilight is called "entre chien et loup" (it is hard to tell if you are a dog or a wolf), which inspired me to create this ambiguous black book. (The book is currently on display at the Tassel Hotel Sanjo Shirakawa.

Because it is indistinguishable, one tries to look at it carefully, and by looking carefully, one can find out what it is. Who are you? The question is, "Who are you? It is like music or a poem that can be applied to anyone, even though it can be used to identify anyone. It seems to reflect our modern society, where it is difficult to live a healthy life, even though we are free to feel and think as we wish. The process of seeking a solution to this question is an attempt to share various personalities, differences, and diversity.

In this exhibition, the colors of Paris at "twilight" were extracted from scenes taken from a car window in the evening in Paris during the 2021 pandemic. What kind of solution will emerge from a sensation that appears to be about the same size as the actual car ride?
