​太陽/Energy Work



In this work I used light and time as keys to visualizing energy. First what is the energy?  My answer was the sun. Before I actually photographed the sun, there came an idea that to catch the image of pure light and heat on a film, quality is not that important.  So instead of an ordinary camera with a lens which I believed would interfere with catching these crucial elements, I made a pin-hole camera. Initially it was positioned on a tripod, however when shooting came to one point, urge to film more light and energy became so strong, I was actually walking toward the sun holding the camera. The photographs below are the trails I left behind of the straight march toward the sun to capture its energy on a film. The one with the light spreading horizontally was shot by chasing the sun from dawn to dusk with running car.
