Toshiharu Omuka, (DIALOGOS 1996 - Conditions of Contemporaries)
I am conscious of the various surfaces that surround me. Surfaces are clues to how I experience the world. From them I become aware of the layer of existence I inhabit between layers of time and space. I visualize the transparent yet conspicuous thickness around me and the countless waves that connect me. Eventually, my surface links with other surfaces and I become part of a connection. Feeling those connections permeates deeply into my being.
I like to imagine merging the conflicts of the world and creating some balance for the disconnected, distorted and cut off. Their layers of space need to be re-connected. I use trees; trees on public or private land, in cities or forests, as reminders of our connections.
It can be a superficial world, but its surfaces lead to something more. They provide an opportunity to think about the ways we are unified with our environment; allowing us to see that we exist in the space between and around other objects. I think of people existing beyond their physical selves, where time and distance are less meaningful, and caring for the environment is synonymous with caring for others and ourselves.
