Ink and wind, paper and sky

/インクと風か、紙とそら 2018

「紙上の建築」をテーマに、表紙を含む3ページに発表した作品。

 

本を読む。ページを繰るたびに紙と紙の間に空間が生まれては消えていく。僕たちはこのかりそめの空間を生み出すことでしか本の世界に入ることはできない。ページの端を三角に折るのは、そこに薄い空気の層を密やかに生み出して本の世界の余韻をカバンの中に漂わせておきたいからだ。

そうした紙と紙の間の繊細で不確かな空間の気配を、もう少しだけ確かなかたちにしたくて、握りつぶすようにゆがめた2枚の紙の重なりに、僕たちだけの秘密の世界を見出した。(虹色のドットと青い等高線が描かれた2枚の紙。作り方は頁上に書かれた①~④を参照)
この世界はきわめてもろく、持ち方ひとつで気積が変化し、紙の艶に反射した光でインクは白くとぶ。ある人は虹色の坑道を深く深く潜り込み、ある人は空と海を駆け抜けるように。あるときは虹色のパーゴラをもつ砂丘でたわむれ、あるときは大地と大地にはさまれた惑星に不時着する。そんな、紙と紙の間に吹く風とインクが紡ぎ出す世界の話。

Ink and wind or paper and sky


Every time you read a book, a space is created between paper and paper and it then disappears. We can enter the world of a book only by creating this emptiness. To fold the edge of the page into a triangle is to create a thin layer of air in there, keeping the book’s world lingering in it. The sign of a delicate and uncertain space between such paper and paper . Wanting to make it a slightly more certain form, we created our own secret world by stacking two crushed pieces of paper.
This world is extremely fragile, and holding it in a certain way changes the air space, and the gloss of the paper makes the ink shine white.
Some people get deep into a rainbow-colored tunnel, others run through the sky and the sea. Sometimes they are in a sand dune with a rainbow colored pergola, some others they will land on a planet sandwiched between earth and earth. Such is the story of the world that blows between ink and wind and paper.

All buildings are made through the plane. Architecture emerges from performing various plane representations such as drawings, sketches, texts, drawings, etc. to convey the image to people.
The booklet, published by Lixil eye, is structured so that the back cover and the last page can realize an architecture with paper.
The little character of the story can be cut from the cover cardboard, while putting a small object under the last page, like a pen, an eraser or a pencil, creates a curve that simulates an hill. The pages, cut and folded make a new space open to the imagination of the reader.
