日本摄影师Muga Miyahara的“床の间(Tokonoma)”系列(床の间是设置在和室靠墙约半叠或一叠大小的空间,通常是木制地板,比和室榻榻米稍微高一点,墙上挂着挂轴,地板摆饰插着当令鲜花的花器。在古代是祭拜神佛的场所,室町时代至战国时代末期,演变成特意在和室内设置“床の间”,当做一种装饰空间)。床の间系列体现了他对传统的解读,他将这块受人尊敬的区域作为舞台,在此设置了15种极富禅意且充满隐喻的场景,平静的画面中潜藏着对暴力的隐射与控诉。

Japan photographer Muga Miyahara’s interpretation of tradition is most noteworthy in his works titled “Tokonoma”. The term refers to a built-in recessed space in a typical Japanese house, usually decorated with a calligraphic or pictorial scroll and an Ikebana flower arrangement. In Miyahara’s vision the Tokonoma becomes a stage presenting a cornucopia of different objects, inviting the viewer to explore a variety of ideas and thoughts. Although the arrangements are zen-like, very pure and simple, they have the effect of disturbing the viewer rather than expressing serenity and tranquillity. A lonely artificial leg, an empty shirt on strings, or knives hanging from the ceiling. Everyone can discover the invisible layers behind the objects for himself. The picture of three bombers and an ascending explosion cloud can – apart from obvious associations with war, air raids and nuclear attacks – be the starting point for various reflections about violence.
