From an early age, I decided that if I were asked to name all the things in this world, my first answer would be an apple. And I am reminded of this periodically. It’s like an apple flying in orbit in the cosmic space of thought.
Suddenly, I think about why apples are number one. There are many examples of apples being used as symbols or metaphors. Newton, Adam and Eve’s Forbidden Fruit, the Beatles, René Magritte, Steve Jobs, Shiritori Hajime, ABC’s Apple…everything that has shaped me is an apple.
someone said. “It seems like there are apples flying in space.” someone said. “There’s no way there’s an apple flying in space.” Another said: “How can we prove that there are no apples flying into space?”
Is the red I see the same red you see? Is that word still valid? In such a non-equilibrium world, what if your mission is to check answers with others, compete with the surrounding celestial bodies, and stay on the only trajectory that deviates from everyone else’s?
What color would you call this color? What would you call this feeling? Let’s give names to words that cannot be put into words, colors that cannot be put into words, and phenomena that cannot be put into words. Because the moment this apple falls from the sky, a new secret may be revealed.

Visual Director/Graphic Artist Strongly attracted to the cosmic view of music and art, he began his creative activities in the mid-2000s, and graduated from Tama Art University with a major in product design in 2006. We mainly develop colorful and pleasurable works that focus on phenomena and images of women, and we also do client work and collaborations such as art direction and graphic design such as CD jackets and advertisements, videos such as music videos, products, and spatial direction. I have also worked on many. When I was young, I had a vague idea that the physical phenomena that occur in the universe often have something in common with the movements of the mind, and in recent years I have begun to reinterpret and visualize these “phenomena” philosophically. It is the main axis of his personal work. “RGB_Light,” a lighting device that creates multicolored shadows, has gone from patent acquisition in the US and Japan to
commercialization. A collection of works “GASBOOK 34 MIDORI KAWANO” is published by GAS AS INTERFACE.
