時間の絵

一コマずつのドローイングと透過光を加えたビデオ撮影のアニメーションの制作で、絵による映像表現を目指しています。映像および絵巻物のための絵を、自己に流れている時間の、思考と意味の変化の過程として描いているところがあります。想像する時間のほうが長いのですが、それは、あの時の出来事や意味を咀嚼して、作品の発露とするのに、数年のズレがあるからです。
方法として、B5サイズの再生紙に8ないし32コマ割りしたドローイングを前のコマをトレースしないで、鉛筆やインク、クレヨンや水彩などで描いていきます。それらをライトボックスにのせ、透過光を加えながら、左上から右下へ、コマ毎にビデオでキャプチャーして、紙の質感もろとも複数の絵の連続体としての映像をアニメーション作品として制作しています。
国内外での展覧会に参加、インスタレーションとしての映像作品の展示のほか、異ジャンルのアーティストとのコラボレーションも多く、演劇やダンス公演での上映など、特にバンドや音楽家の、オルガノラウンジやVOQとの映像と音楽の空間表現を十数年来にわたり、断続的に行っています。
また、手製映像装置、絵巻物マシーンを用いたワークショップ、踊る人形を地域の学校や美術館または公共施設などで積極的に実施していいます。
