Sometimes I get confused when I’m under sunlight. Maybe it’s just too beautiful…or something else. “That” is important, perhaps. I think it has to do with my confusion caused by sunlight, and it looks like everyone survives by eating pictures, like many different images. And so, I’m not talking about people who would say something like, “You better eat such and such food because it’s safe and healthy,” or, “Here is the dish.” I’d rather wanna refer to artworks of people who question, “First of all, what IS this?  What do we do with it?” while simultaneously being surprised by it and having spasms nonstop. It’s about…how we live our lives.
