CONTEXT

On November 4th, 2002, I suffered from a fracture dislocation of my cervical spinal cord from a skiing accident.  I fell down head-first from five meters above the ground.  My head pierced directly through the snowy ground and my full weight caused severe damage to my 4th and 5th cervical vertebra.  The reality was harsh and I thought I lost all hopes when I had to look at my MRI photo to face the reality.  Creativity inspires myself and others by creating something.  So I tried to have an image of a flower seed planted in my broken cervical spinal cord, which can bloom if I can nourish it properly.  I have thought through my way of life and came up with this philosophy.  No one can go back to the past whether you encounter this sort of accident or not.  All you have to do is to think through your life and continue to imagine creative things.

CONTEXT

The sensibility of Japanese people is not derived from innovation and reinvention, but derived from respect and preservation of subconscious awareness of culture. 
Japanese people have fermented cultural thread blended by cultural influence from the West and other countries, as Japanese have carried on its unique culture from generation to generation.  Japanese traditional beauty called “Wabi-Sabi” lies in the core of this cultural fermentation.  This sophisticated virtue was taught by a famous tea master Sen No Rikiyu.  When the minimum quantity of “beauty” is installed in the simplest form of space without any waste, the consciousness of yin and yang in space start to unify and create inflection.  In the end, there is only the “essential beauty of sophistication” left out in the simplest form of the space.
Sophistication is a beauty which stands in stark contrast to innovation and reinvention.
Fate can be irrational but my tragic accident taught me a form of perception to aim for this sophisticated beauty by accepting the reality.  New seeds sprouted from my broken cervical spinal cord and my ruined fate is carrying on to next it’s stage by blooming flowers to reach for sophistication.
