–Sane 2020

Digital prints on laid paper, lettering embossing 
21 x 30 cm

The photo series -Sane, (–さんへ) consists of reprinted digital-analog photos on laid paper embossed with the Japanese alphabet letters. The embossing letters give a message of friendship beyond age disparity, nationality, and language.
Memory can be recalled even by light stimulus, for instance, a change of season, the scent of a breeze, and the sounds of waves. Even in Vienna, the stimulation exists to indulge in reminiscence of Japan. Photos are to evoke remembrance, at the same time, the anticipation of the steadfastness in 2009 Tokyo.
However, after ten years, everything changed: friends, villages, homes, and stores. The transition of time gives us sorrow and unfamiliarity. This photo series recalls the memory of the diaspora representing the blind letter.

This project is supported by Cultural Department of the City of Vienna (MA7).
