In my work titled ‘Figure’, I explore the universal expressions in portrait by controlling the uncertainty resulted from the materialization of the image and providing the subject’s temperature reading recorded by thermography camera.

Chocolate is created by temperature control method called tempering, which enables the chocolate’s oil compound to establish crystallization. I feel there is a relationship between chocolate and this work that portrays existence through temperature, which is represented as looming silhouette of numbers.

(日本語) サーモグラフィで記録される対象の温度情報をそのまま記述し、イメージに実体を与える際に生じる不確実性を制御することで、肖像における普遍的な表現を模索しています。

テンパリングという温度調節技術により油脂の結晶を整えることで仕上げられるチョコレート。存在が体温として数字に置き換えられてシルエットが浮かび上がる本作品と、どこか関係があるように感じます。
