The original function of objects, which have been used for a long time, is reduced as time goes on.

However, the objects have a new value as a meaning of more than objects to an individual.

We proposed how to love such objects in a different viewpoint and wanted to have a meaning differing from recycling.


Chairs, used in reality in ¡®RE_LOVE LIGHTING¡¯ series, are expanded to space through light.

Through such deformation, we intended to have potentiality as products of artwork

'RE_LOVE' was created in two processes of work under the same title.

For these processes, we collected old furniture and clothes etc,

which we actually used, and we intend to propose method to love these things again.


To love the things again means to add another function to them.

To love the things again here needs be distinguished from recycling.


Though the old and ragged chair in my room will gradually lose a great deal of its original function,

it will hold prevalent value over other new ones through the time and space shared with me.

This chair may carry an image of myself on it, stretching leg to the floor,

or elaborately cherish a reminiscence of a time when I conversed with someone.


Sharing of such time and memory is also a matter of intimacy between me and the thing.


However, regrettably enough, we repeatedly replace the thing for

a new 'goods' unconsciously in pursuit of the 'function' it provides.


The relationship between a thing and people should be understood as an expression of

'self love' on oneself as a result rather than personifying a thing.

The intention is that the act of loving a thing again is engraved as love of one self about the time and space,

and such love be proposed as methodology through 'RE_LOVE'.
