映像と音の狭間で、知覚は曖昧にうつろう。
船で旅に出た。後方のデッキに出て、穏やかな海を眺め続けている。目の前には、広がり続ける空、傾きかかった水平線、水面に照りつける強烈な太陽光、船が海に描く軌跡。そして、エンジンと波の音、船の底から伝わる振動と心地良い風。今ここにある全ての瞬間を感じ取ろうとしている。私は海を見に来たのだ。そう思いながら、いつの間にか空想に耽っているのかもしれない。時折聞こえる汽笛が、目の前の風景を鮮明にさせる。

Perception changes ambiguously between moving images and sound.
I went on a journey by water. I had been gazing at the calm sea for hours on the back deck. Before my eyes was endless sky, the nearly leaning sea horizon, strong sunlight shining on the surface of the water, and trails on the sea traced by the ship. The sound were of the engine and waves, vibrations propagated through the ship hull, and a pleasant breeze. I’m trying to sense every moment. I am here to watch the sea. Thinking this, I will daydream even before I know it. Occasional whistles make the scene in front of me clear.
