This project is a psychoanalysis of “Salary man”-Japanese white collar workers-.
After finished study of psychology in Japan’s college, I had worked for a commercial bank as a Salary man for 3 and half years. In a sense, this project is my “Man’s search for meaning”.
In the working period, I met many odd custom of salary men. Wearing same outfits and faces, so much gauging other people’s feeling and so on. I felt a sense of insane and disgusting, because I saw them like “No Faces”, lost their individuality. Although before I realize, I apparently became the one of them. In subconscious level, I was tuned and the border between me and others became quite blur, subtle and fuzzy. My real self vaporized and gone somewhere.
