Title:
Transparent Memory

Author:
Asaki Kan

Description:
My work is about all kinds of weather I experience every day, and I wanted to use this natural phenomenon as universal non-verbal language through my work. As I am always fascinated by heat, I wanted to work with it somehow as well as using materials such as mirror, copper, and water, which can be found anywhere, and I often use them in my work. As water falls onto the ground drop by drop, it evaporates to the air, which is an elemental circulation of weather. As time passes by, I wanted to see how each watermark leaves its trace on the copper. It might turn to green later due to oxidisation according to property of water. Water in the tank might get dried out if it does not rain. But that indicates time, and I believe that my work still works even if the tank becomes empty as it will rain someday and one day. Although the initial point of this work is very personal, I would like people to see, hear, smell, taste, feel, and think in their own way freely without any pre-conception, and get inspired by. My work is an extract capture of this universal perpetual actual time we are living in, and this work is temporary in this space, therefore not everyone would experience it. But I hope that they would remember somehow when they visit here again or wherever, and whenever, as a transparent memory.
