しょーもない私の十代が終わりました。/ My boring teenage had just finished. (2012) 

 

私にとって大人になるということは悪であり、恐怖でもありました。

どうにかして私の十代を記憶に残そうと、二十歳の誕生日までの百日間を24枚撮りカラーフィルムで1日1本撮影しました。

For me, being a grown-up was evil and a fear of mine. I wanted to somehow record myself as a teenager so I took pictures for 100 days before my 20th birthday. I took one film each day using color negative films. On my 20th birthday I tried to be a "grown-up" as I imagined. I did what grown-ups are supposed to, or allowed to do.

(Generally, 20 years old is regarded as adult age in Japan)
