I love drawing since I was a child. So, my school record of art class was always good(others? I didn’t care). Then eventually I entered an art university.
However, for my character I don’t like doing the same thing as others are doing, I had gradually have interested in background and logic of art and design master pieces. So, when I was about to graduate to my art university, I had been not interested in passion of making something very much, I think.
Then at the time, IT market was developing rapidly and required skills of IT market became easier than before as well.
So, after finishing my time being a student, I started working at a IT market using programming because IT market seems more logically than ordinary art and design market.
However, I have been working as an IT engineer for a very long time. My interest had become focusing only to “how to make” something what clients asked. To be honest, recently I had not been interested in passion of someone who planed projects.
Taro Okamoto is one of the most famous Japanese modern artists. I, of course knew about him for quite a while and I also have experience watching his work actually.
he wrote some books that many of my friends read them and liked. So, I tried reading the books, but I couldn’t finish reading any of them.
To be honest, I thought his opinion is completely right, but anybody can do it? I have been focusing on his logic. It was boring to me during that time.
Recently I got a chance to read it again. Then I’ve thought about his script and logic, how it has no meaning. He seems to demand us to imagine on what he thinks. It actually seems hurting and encourage ourself.
And, I also thought that I need many experiences to be able to imagine what he means.
In this book, he’s insisting that finding ourselves inside of others is so, important in our life. When I saw something or someone, sometimes I could feel a special feeling that I couldn’t explain by words. I think expressing something I can’t explain by words is art.
(Taro Okamoto is also insisting that art means not only making something to express. Any expressions could be art. It means , expressing how you feel is the same as living your true life.)
Someone says that expressing something requires many skills, but I think that skill is just can shorten time to express something. Skills doesn’t have any relations to value of what you felt and what you want to express.
(So, why does professionals need many skills? If a client ask something to a professionals, if it takes long time, that couldn’t be said, a professional work, right?)
The conclusion is …. I could change myself even If I am over 30…lol.
