In the summer of 2009, I went to the Shimoda Aquarium of Izu with my daughter. There are many small penguins in the aquarium. The penguins are just standing and looking far away.

At the moment when I tried to look into the faces one by one, the keeper brought food. Penguins who saw it. For a moment, they started running at a tremendous speed and jumped into the aquarium so I couldn’t understand what had happened.

I was in a position where the aquarium was completely exposed, and I felt as if I saw the penguins flying.

This work is small at 70 cm x 70 cm, and it looks like a cramped aquarium, but depending on how you look at it, the river flowing through the land below, the forest spreading between the hills, and the penguins flying in the sky with friends…

I made it so that you can imagine.
