●Work 7-Acquired Items
Have you ever looked at the back of your shows? You could always find one or two piece of stone in the back of your shoes even you only walked on asphalt road. You may find something else, could be a piece of plastic or something like a seed of some plant. There are different in size and color, black and white, amber color, green etc. Where does this piece of stone come from? I look back today looking at the back of my shoes.
Mr. Joji Hayashi, a designer and who is belong to the association of watching on the road, has a collection of stones at the back of shoes. He was traveling Europe for 100 days and collected a piece of stone day by day and saved them in small bottles. He wrote down the name of the place on the cork of a bottle for that day. His memory cannot be bought by cash nor found but came on the back of his shoes.
We are not merely progressing towards the destination but we are also acquiring something on the way. It’s the life. We live everyday with attaching something unconsciously and it is like a piece of stone is attaching the back of shoes. I think, there is always “Acquired Items” in ordinary days and there may be items cannot be seen or very tiny which we cannot notice a different a day. We all have today and we all pick up a mall stone which called “Acquired Items”.
I thought of rolling up socks which I ware a day so that my Acquired Items (socks) knows what I did on that day.
