Post

With the spread of the Internet and the tools that connect to it, the informatization of society is accelerating day by day.

Information on world events is delivered to us instantly through digital devices.

In addition to this, information is distributed endlessly through social networking sites, video sites, and other channels of influential persons and organizations.

In the process of digesting the flood of information, we may be unconsciously losing time and opportunity to think about the issues that we really need to face.

This work, "Post," is a photographic work that began on April 1, 2015 and continues to this day.

This work consists of multiple exposures of the full page of a daily newspaper morning edition, converted to a single image data (Daily), and posted on websites and SNS.

The image data of one month's worth of image data (Daily: approximately 30 images) is printed out with the date entered, and the image is further photographed using multiple exposure photography to convert one month's worth of image data into a single image (Monthly).

The image data for one year (Monthly: 12 images) is printed out, and the image is further photographed by multiple exposure photography to convert one year's worth of image data into one image (Annually).

Daily, Monthly, and Annual images produced by multiple exposure photography, which is one of the optical functions of the camera, cannot be read to convey any definite image.

However, each image data has a date and a period of time, and information about the events of a day, a month, or a year is always recorded.

I hope to use the obscure images with their dates and durations to bring about an experience for viewers of different backgrounds that will remind them of their own issues (social, personal, local, etc.), encourage them to explore ways to improve, and restore autonomous thinking and activity.
