周年のプロジェクト

2013 + 10 = 2023

2013 + 50 = 2063

2013 + 100 = 2113

記載

二枚の添付垂直象徴がある水平作。和紙の大判スクリーン印刷。

それぞれの作は少なくとも一つの独特の記念印があります。この記念印は一周年、二周年、十周年、50周年、百周年のが選ばれます。あるのは多い印があって、例えば50周年の印と百周年の。10、50、100の交われた周年。十周年等の入道雲。二周年印の壊れた格子。

理論的には、これは七五三の根柢にある数霊術と似合っていますが、大人とより広い複数年や世代の為です。ですので、あるバージョンは100−10−2で、もう一つのは100−50−10です。

ジョン・ケージの誕生百周年記念。好み道場の創立50周年記念。結婚十年記念。東日本大震災と津波の二周年。シリア騒乱の二周年。子供の一歳の誕生日。

Notes on The Anniversary Project

2013 + 10 = 2023

2013 + 50 = 2063

2013 + 100 = 2113

Description:

Two horizontal pieces, each with accompanying vertical ensigns. Large format screenprints on Japanese paper.

Each piece contains at least one unique mark indicating an anniversary year. There are one, two, ten, fifty, or hundred year anniversary year marks to choose from. Some of the pieces contain multiple marks: a joint hundred-and-fifty year anniversary. A combined ten-, fifty-, and hundred-year anniversary. A massed cloud of ten-year anniversaries. A broken grid of two year marks.

In theory, this is similar to the numerology behind the Japanese festival Shichi-Go-San (7-5-3), but for older people and spanning much wider spans of years, including multiple generations. So, one version is 100-10-2.  Another version is 100-50-10.

The hundred-year anniversary of John Cage’s birth. The fifty-year anniversary of the favorite dojo opening. A ten-year wedding anniversary. Two-year anniversary of Tohoku tsunami, the two-year anniversary of the Syrian uprising. A child’s first birthday.
