Scape

ここではないどこかを夢みる

そこがどんな風景かはわからない

現実味に欠けた部屋での暮らし

仮の住処とも思えない

折り重なった時間が纏わりつく

絶えず後ろをついてくる自分の影

カメラのファインダー越しに浮かぶ世界

すべては光の粒子となる

その淡い光のなかに現れる不確かな存在

そして逃避行はいつもうまくいかない

私はカメラ・オブスキュラという原初的な装置を用いて生活者を写し撮る

いつかあなたもここを離れてしまうから

I dream of somewhere that is not here.
I don't know what the landscape is like there.
Living in a room that lacks reality.
It doesn't feel like a temporary home.
The layers of time cling to me.
The shadow of myself constantly follows behind me.
The world floating through the camera's viewfinder.
Everything becomes light particles.
An uncertain existence appears in the pale light.
And the escape always goes wrong.
I use a primitive device called a camera obscura to photograph the people of life.
Because one day you, too, will leave this place.
