  • In Short - English

    To start the work in an improvisational way causes various unexpected accidents. These accidents allow me to perceive some confusion and wonder, and they provide me with a strange motivation to create works, which is so stimulating that I feel a distinct pleasure. Then during the course of completing the works, I encounter a lot of hurdles, and there are roughly two main ones.

     

    One is "something is insufficient", and the other is "too much is added". If I can manage to clear up these two problems, the work would be almost completed. – Tomoo Gokita

  • 摘要 - 繁體中文

    以即興的方式開始創作會導致各種意外。 這些意外使我感受到些許困惑和驚奇,同時它們使我生了奇特的創作動機,這種刺激使我感到特別的愉悅。 然後,在完成工作的過程中,我會遇到很多障礙,大約有兩種主要的障礙。 一個是「略有不足」,另一個是「畫蛇添足」。 如果我能設法解決這兩個問題,這件作品就接近完整了。- 五木田智
