The film centers on a woman and her room. I tried to visualise the memories and the time accumulated in the room. The dancing figure that was captured using long exposures is an entity between the existential and imaginary.

Matsuo Mine is a large abandoned complex in Hachimantai city, Iwate prefecture. I felt it possesses two conflicting natures- those of impermanence and eternity. Instead of the concrete “past” I tried to look for abstract “memories” through the viewfinder and resurrect them as a narrative.

The film captures the dishes on a table in a forest over a long period of time. The audience’s imagination is stimulated as time passes and the scenery. An eloquent story is told as meaning emerges from the subject. A drama is born out of the contrast between- and the death of- man and nature.

I filmed sunsets with the techniques of time-lapse and multiple exposures on 16mm film from the same position and angle for 5 years. While the days repeat, there is never the same sky. Time that has passed will not return. But, the sun will rise again.
