響 (Hibiki) – Resonance explores a holistic view of the universe through contemplating dots—elementary particles that create the whole universe including our bodies. I was inspired by the idea of 素生 (so-sei), introduced by Ken Kobayashi, Ph.D., from the view point of Quantum medicine. So-sei refers to "fundamental love" and "life force" that are innately in each elementary particle. My work consists of stone lithography prints and the application of tusche wash techniques. Numerous dots printed on the washi paper are the records of events occurring in the artmaking process. Grease particles resonate within their environment while mixed in tushe water. 響 (Hibiki) – Resonance ponders the mutual relationship between 心 (minds), our bodies and the universe, representing how invisible elements resonate with each other and create this reality.
