Literally "Stand" means to keep an upright position on the feet & "Drift" means to be carried by a current. Apply these two words to our lives. "In standing condition" we have our own will."In drifting condition", we don't need our opinion because of depending on others. These two conditions aren't opponents of one another.

The Gulf War appeared on television for three months from January 1991, and almost everyone went back and forth between these two conditions "Stand & Drift".
Common experience, isn't it ! ?

Il s'agit de la troisième partie de la trilogie De-Sign, vibrante série visuellement expérimentale. La première partie examine les différents aspects de l'exploitation durant la transition entre l'ère Showa et l'ère Heisei de l'histoire contemporaine japonaise. La deuxième partie étudie les formes et les rythmes traditionnels qui régentent la poésie, les campagnes publicitaires et les messages de la police que l'on peut lire sur le bord des routes.

La troisième partie, Stand: Drift, nous propose une vision de la couverture médiatique japonaise de la crise du Golf ainsi que les réactions culturelles par rapport à cet événement. La critique est ici subtilement intégrée dans le riche déploiement visuel des images.
