The On-going Life

The fact that different people sitting in tea gardens reiterate the same things caught my attention. Even if we have different lives, we are in the same routine. The actions that we do in a day at different places and different times are repeated the following day. While time goes by, even though our on-going life is seemingly moving, just like a rocking chair, it remains only at the inertia composed of the routine reiteration of the same acts. This action that I do in front of the mirror is my inner confrontation.

Materials: Rocking chair, mirror, diving suit.
