sea ​​of ​​oblivion

I live and work in Miyazaki Prefecture. It is a town surrounded by the sea everywhere you look. There are many beautiful beaches that have been thoroughly cleaned by the government and volunteers. However, a little further away, out to sea, a completely opposite world spreads out. The seaside is as it is in modern society, where debris and illegally dumped items have been dumped and forgotten, and no one even dares to enter.

Plastics, gloves, toys, and carcasses of fish and birds, all of which have lost their vivid colors, have become trash. Things that come from far away places, caught in the waves of time, dried up by sunlight, and transformed into new forms. Traces of human involvement that evoke strange sensations that don't seem to belong to this world.

I was absorbed in collecting each piece of debris while looking down. I feel like the abandoned objects speak to me. Someone made it, it's in someone's hands, and it goes to the beach with the waves. And meet me. This series is a final portrait that records its final state.
