TIME CRYSTAL


M GALLERY (Ashikaga, March 2024)



In his Theory of Relativity, Einstein challenged the once common sense notion that time and space are absolute and unchanging, and proved that they change depending on the location of observation, showing that there are completely new perspectives and flexible ways of perceiving this world.

When we are able to break through old norms, orders, and fixed ideas, new stories and the next era can be spun. Even today, when we stand at the threshold of a perception that transcends time and space, there are still constant sparks caused by misunderstandings and lack of understanding. But because we continue to face a void that will never be filled, it is thought that the traces will represent today as we gradually unravel providence.

A fetus is said to change its shape as if it were following the evolutionary process of an organism, and pearls with a beautiful luster are produced from a foreign substance that has entered the shell. The twinkling of a star in the night sky arrives from an endless place, and a moment of remembrance has a value equal to eternity.

Immaturity and casual events become rather a springboard for discovery and growth, and absurd contradictions and conflicts, like the pendulum of a clock, also become indispensable elements for us to mark our history. As we reflect on the past, times change and contexts deepen.

Because we know our own ignorance and helplessness, a precious radiance dwells beyond that which we continue to build and refine. As if a new life will be born again in the limited time.
