Making of Stones & Water Art

【川での制作の一連の流れ】

ロケーションを探す

石を拾う

石をタワシで綺麗にする

積み上げる

光と構図を選び、撮影をする

崩して終了

【環境に優しい制作の為の心掛け】

川底の石には水性生物の卵や藻が生息している為、陸にある石を使う

微生物に分解されやすいパーム素材のタワシで石を洗う

撮影が終わった後は、崩して帰る

Here is a series of steps in the making of the river

 

Find a location

Picking up rocks

Cleaning the stones with a scrubbing brush

Stack up the stones

Choose the light and composition, and shoot

To demolish and finish

 

This is what I try to do for environmentally friendly works

Use stones on land, as the stones at the bottom of the river are inhabited by the eggs and algae of aquatic organisms.

Wash the stone using a palm material scrubbing brush, which is easily broken down by microorganisms

Demolish the stones and leave so as not to disturb the view
