The World the Children Made

In this project, I try to express "children's world" more realistically and more positively than Ray Bradbury's short story "The World the Children Made", by narrowing down the subject to children from main project "Something Here".
When I looked their world the children of today show from time to time, I have remembered that I learned about an individual and society in there, and that "time" and that "smell" were certainly over there too. I think this time retrace own past, in other words, it may be replaced with "Save" in today's society.
At that time, I strongly feel that I want to regain their world in the place to be, it has been removed from contemporary society and it has been rebuild in the virtual/cyber space, and it's an essential element for form the city space that can coexist with natural environments.


子供たちの世界

このプロジェクトでは、メインプロジェクト"Something Here"の中から主題を「子供達」に絞ることによって、ブラッドベリが1950年に発表した短編作品"The World the Children Made"の中に描いた「子供達の世界」を私なりによりポジティブにまたよりリアルに表現できないか試みている。
今の子供達が時折見せる「彼らの世界」を眺めていると、幼い時分もそこで個と社会を学んだことや、そこにあったあの時間や匂いまでもが蘇ってきた。この過去の記録を辿る時間は、現代社会において「救い」と言い換えられるかもしれない。
現代社会の中で居場所を失い仮想空間に移座されてしまった「彼ら世界」を本来あるべき場所に取り戻したい、また自然環境と共存できる都市空間の形成にはこれこそが必要不可欠な要素なんだということを、その時私は強く感じた。
