The 57th Exhibition Katsuya lse Exhibition Image Macaroni November 2 - 27 ,1990

"Image Macaroni" /It seems that in the back of the Altamila caves, there are crooked lines called "macaroni" that were drawn before paintings. One day a few years ago, something very similar to that "macaroni" spilled out of the back of my head onto paper. I immediately put it in a clean laboratory dish, cultivated it and started observing it. In any case, this is a 20,000 year old substitute. Observation in these confusing times is extremely difficult calling for an undefiled mind and sensitivity in the observer. Strangely enough, it reacts to trivial everyday events and changes its shape. (Dried branches fallen by the roadside or a meaningless conversation with a friend.) After many failures, I made a number of valuable discoveries. • "Image macaroni" has no shape. • "Image macaroni" changes shape. • "Image macaroni" has no scale limits.
