Nails protect the tips of fingers and are very useful tool in life. Recently, they are used even for electric signs. Nails always grow but got spoiled by dirt and cut in the end. It returns back to the nature. It is just like the way human life goes. However, nails are regarded trivial things. Nails which are also trace of life bear the pain to be cut as well. I feel so sorry for these nails.
Life is doing, harmonized with others. Two eyes project is the same case. The traces of lives donated by people with generous minds are linked together. Through this network, wonderful works are created.
with funeral armband shape needs black nails to express black strings. The scheduled works got some troubles since black nails were not sufficiently donated on the scheduled date. Black color can cover those donated nails. However, there was a principle not to process the donated nails to contain donors’ traces of lives.
To those who live in modern times, we ask to donate us their nails cut in crescent shape after polishing them with black manicure. Anyone can donate nails but the unpleasant and physical part feeling of it is reluctant. Without artistic sentiment, it is difficult thing to donate nails. Fortunately, there came some people who were willing to donate their nails and some people even told us they would buy black manicure to polish. There occurred minds in me that nails of them welcome their destiny as soon as possible. I usually mourn nails’ deaths but the minds easily change their shapes depending on situations.
Nails, I can survive only when you die!
I will never forget your devotional life which bears pain of cut.
This work is made of 1~3mm 629 nails. Nails grow in about 0.1mm every day. If the works are done only by two eyes’ nails, about 4 years have to pass by. Thanks to donators, working time was moved up.
Birth always implies death.
All living creatures will die someday.
The tips of physical body continue to grow and be cut periodically.
Even now, body repeats generation and extinction.
Death gives life to beings in the world, enlightening the principle of nature.
Death we welcome, following the law of nature is not despair but hope.
Humans live, satisfying their desires in the course of human network.
What can we do and create with the energy that we received from the dead?
If we accept our deaths, we may be able to give another hope to living lives.
