Hecomi Fitting 
– Filling the crack –

Hecomi are everywhere, on roads, exterior or interior walls, floors, corridors, and ceilings. If I find one amongst them that I like, I will transfer its outline onto transparent film. I can then use PVC to create a positive – a flat object that fits directly into the actual crack. It is a dramatic moment when this unique key tightly fits in the keyhole with a click. By filling in the previously empty space, its shape stands out and sometimes I wonder about the stories of those lost pieces.
Note: The plates are highly compressed and hardened PVC made from recycled materials.

凹みフィッティング– 凹みにはめ込む –

 道路、建物の外壁、内壁、床、廊下、天井など凹みは至るところにあります。その中でも気に入ったものを見つけると、その輪郭を透明フィルムに写し取っていきます。それをもとにPVCで制作した凸型となる平面のオブジェクトを、実際の凹みにはめ込んでみます。世界に一つしかない鍵が、その鍵穴にカチリとはまり込むドラマチックな瞬間です。空白を埋めることで、逆に空白の形が浮かび上がり、失われた部分のストーリーに思いを馳せるときでもあります。
※リサイクル素材の高圧縮硬化PVCプレートを使用しています。
