It is known that ‘1/f’ Fluctuation exists in human heart motion, flickering flames, and trees that wind in wind etc. It’s said that the ‘1/f’ Fluctuation that has unexpected randomness in regularity gives comfort to the viewer. As with fluctuations such as natural phenomena over time, there are Fluctuation in the impressionistic painting and Fine Art photography, each have ‘1/f^2’ and ‘1/f^1.5’. So, a photograph which have approximately ‘1/f^1.5’ has the factor which appeals something to the viewer.
However, a photograph that fixes light through a lens is an image in which the edge is emphasized compared with impressionistic painting. Therefore, photographs are cutting the other world more sharply than the scenery which we normally see in the eyes.
Along with the development of science technology, performance of cameras and lenses dramatically improved, and it became possible to shoot the scenery which we can’t see in daily life. As a result, photography diverge from the reality, it got to form a photographic image.
On the other hand, we don’t see most things in daily life, we don’t even consider how the photographic world is heterogeneous. And so, I intentionally add Fluctuation to the photograph that I took, I designed a way to display the real world that we normally see in our eyes through photographs.
A new photograph that deliberately added Fluctuation is the scenery itself that we’ve someday seen, it made people remember their memories. That is, real world is constantly fluctuating, it showed that there may not be certain things in our world.
