on TOKITAMA


 

“On TOKITAMA” is the Project in which participants choose his/her own favorite TOKITAMA and make 30-second comments in camcorder’s presence.  I’ve got 692 speakers so far by the end of July, 2011.  When I get approximately 30 comments I make them into a 30-minute picture and put it on the screen at galleries or bars.  There have been 22 volumes and still increasing. 
I started taking pictures when I was invited to an event in a club.  The owner said “No” when I wanted to paste postcards on the wall.  Then I came up with the idea of playing the video.  Once I tried, I knew that taking pictures and editing them were both lots of fun and came to be given to that activity. 
Participants have been all the way through 0 to 90 years old; men and women, musicians and beauticians, Italians and Swedish, and dogs and chinchilla rabbits.  The only thing they do is to speak to the camera: by doing so they make you smile, laugh, and think.  Words are interesting, people are diverse, and the world is never past saving.  I always feel that way every time I make or watch the video.
