Borderlines will be set up for us not to be disappointed, 2018


Video 4'43''
New York City


According to the NYC Administrative Code, every owner, lessee or occupant of buildings is under an obligation to manage the sidewalks in front of them to the roadway. In case it was found that the sidewalk which is adjacent to his properties was not cleaned, he will be fined.
And they have not only to keep clean but also always to watch the area because trash is artificially carried, comes and goes on the sidewalks by someone who avoids the responsibility of that.
After the streets were snowed, the ambiguous borderlines among the managed zones can clearly been seen, and their attitude of responsibility will be represented as well. At that time, I left the invisible borderlines, which had possessed a virtue of trusting in another person, as a wall.

家の所持者や借家人は、家の前の歩道を管理する義務を負っている。管理を怠り、監視員に見つかった場合、罰金が課せられることになる。また、彼らは家の前を掃除するだけでなく、常に監視もしなければならない。なぜならゴミはその責任を逃れるため、人為的にも境界を行ったり来たりしているからである。
大雪が降ったある日、普段は曖昧であった管理区画の境界線と、そこを管理している人物の態度が見えた。その際に私は他人を信用する美徳を有してきた不可視の境界を壁として残した。
