-シンクロニシティ- 心理学者のカール・ユングが提唱した概念で、因果関係の全く無い二つ以上の事象が偶然的に類似性と接近性を持つ事を指す。日本語では「共時性」と訳される。 「Time１」「Time２」「Time３」の三つのシリーズから成るこれらの作品は、一見なんのかかわり合いも無く無意味で、無造作に選ばれた画面上のモチーフを再構築して見えてくる新たなイメージと、無意識下での制作上のプロセスにおける矛盾を組み合わせて関連性を持たせた事から見えてくる新たな側面を浮かび上がらせる意図で制作した。
Synchronicity ; the word that defines “meaningful coincidences” was introduced by psychiatrist Carl Jung(1875-1961). Jung coined the word "synchronicity" to describe "temporally coincident occurrences of acausal events." Jung became convinced that everything in the universe is intimately connected, and that suggested to him that there must exist a collective unconscious of humankind. The Synchronicity series consists of three works subtitled as Time1, Time2 and Time3. Each work represents a random image at a specific point in time. Nirasawa believes that the combinations will form different images in the mind of each viewer. Sometimes the coincidental combination of random images resolves its own contradictions to reveal an unexpected connection, image, emotion or harmony. Her works aim to reveal the parts of reality that may not be initially obvious. In the Synchronicity series there are various motives in the pictures including a lure fish, tomato can, insects, plants, eye balls, etc… These random motives, composed disorderly, initially give us the perception of creepy-ness and non-sense. However, some images became synchronized and harmonized on the resultant picture, when the thin lines were added. We end up creating something that doesn’t look anything like the image we had thought it would be, but perfectly resembles the image we had now, ourselves, formed and chosen in our sub-conscious. We create our own mental impressions of images based on our past personal experiences. The process of creating a piece of art, of creating a tangible version of our thoughts and emotions, often involves moving back and forth between the conscious and sub-conscious. The result is an artwork unique to each viewer, created in the subconscious, by each person’s own perception of images and emotions in his or her life.
