Children today have no choice but to try to read the emotions of others through the cover of a mask. Their attempts to communicate are based on what they sense in the other person's eyes, or what feelings emanate and transmit from the other person's entire being. This artwork was created in the hope that soon we can see the smiling faces of children under bright blue skies, while knowing full well that those blue skies are probably already a distant memory.

現代の子供たちは、マスク越しに相手の感情を読み取るしか術がありません。そのため相手の目を見て感じることや、相手の身体全体から伝わって来るフィーリング、それらを基にコミュニケーションを試みます。この作品は、早く青空の元で子供たちの笑顔が見られますようにという祈りを込めて制作されました。その青空はもう思い出の彼方にあるのだろうと知りながら。
