Hiroshi Atobe

Drops and Stardust








Water drops turning to the starry night. I found two words ‘spontaneously’ and ‘simultaneously’ alongside one another in a vocabulary notebook and thought it seemed to be wonderful that the meanings of the two words were conjoined. I embody the idea by using a turntable with a running mirror under the photo panel, and it could imply how I and others relate across the media symbolically. Consequently water turns into the starry night, like howling dreams come true.
