The "Fluctuation"

Fluctuation is a coiled feeling.

The "Fluctuation"

Fluctuation≒"Mono no aware"," in the context of Zero-horizon photographic art, is a cognitive effect of experience that is recalled as a reaction (instinctive) in the individual's mental image from primitive sensations ≒ instinctive sensations, and cannot be established as something physically fixed and fixed.

In other words, in the momentary expressive work of photography, since it is fixed as a physical image (as a photograph), the "symbol (trigger)," that is, the expression(fluctuation) that evokes a specific action in the mental image, will be defining as a "cue".

This is nothing but a process of "cutting out" the flow of time, but at the same time, it also cuts out the continuity of space.
Therefore, the "fluctuation≒"Mono no aware"" which is a continuous event, whether regular or irregular, is not physically expressed

The only "fluctuation" that appears is as a memory of experience or a reaction of sensibility, which can be called "feeling" reflected in the mental image of the person who appreciates it. This is because of "Mono no aware".
In other words, the visual act of spinning (recalling) the "fluctuation" in each individual's mental image is a motivation (stimulus) to give the viewer a feeling, and this is where the instinctive response of human beings comes into play.
