Night Site # 1-6

/ exhibited at 'Geography of Space, Archeaology of Time' exhibition / 26 Oct-1 Dec 2018 /Australian Centre for Photography, Sydney

[Excerpt from my writing on 'Night Site', 7/10/2018]

"The sites, which I photograph at night, are mostly faintly exposed to be visible. They are the sites where I feel the possibility of being open, or pervasive. This is suggested in the reflections or the actual light sources, or a combination of both artificial and natural (for example, the street lights and moon light). This feeling actually resonates with the sensations I had when walking at night during my Bundanon residency. At that time, I could not articulate why I was drawn to the night walks. But in reflection I can say there is some similarity with my recent walks [in Tokyo]."

'Night Site' was developed through participating to the project, 'Geography of Space, Archeology of Time' - 'in Dialogue' with Izabela Pluta, facilitated by Allison Holland (Australian Centre for Photography), with the funding from Australian-Japan Foundation, and the technial support from Kawalabo! Kawala Printmaking Laboratory, Tokyo. The project's exhibition was held 26 October - 1 December 2018 at the ACP project gallery, Sydney.
