I am profoundly interested in the question of what it means to be a human being today, how each of us live, how we love and how we die. From this basis, my desire is to witness how we, as people, engage in our world, how we live within and go beyond our paradigms. I treat these themes through video, photography, text, sound and music, travelling extensively to witness the journeys of people and their world while constantly deepening my understanding in how we all live and experience this life together. The value I place is on the people I film or photograph and the strength of the human spirit. The vital process of what makes my work “tick” is the space given to each subject “to be”. Through offering this space or area of nothingness (“mu” in Japanese) to my subject the essence of the person can be revealed.
