地電流 (tchi den ryū) in Japanese means Telluric Current.
These images thus speak of these energies which circulate on the Earth. A current induced by variations in the earth’s magnetic field. Energies that are more or less present depending on the place on earth.
The Archipelago of Japan, located on the Ring of Fire at the intersection of several tectonic plates, is one of those places where their presence, although invisible, is in everything that structures the Country. Its volcanic chains, its thermal springs, its regular earth tremors, its terrifying tsunamis are the most visible elements.
But the people themselves were shaped by this presence and civilization had to organize itself with these indomitable natural elements. The Japanese have been able to improve their security with huge dykes, towers that can withstand terrible earthquakes, but they have also been able to take advantage of them for their leisure, with the Onsen (thermal baths), dishes that are cooked on the edge volcanoes and all the activity linked to this telluric energy. The Japanese people have adapted so well to their natural elements since the dawn of time, that even their way of thinking has harmonized with nature. This is how the form of Shintoism was born, this religion where God is considered immanent in Nature. The very way of life of the Japanese in society responds to this energizing and at the same time destructive energy.
These images, which were taken during various trips to Japan, where we can see Mount Fuji 富士山, the Skytree of Tōkyō スカイツリー, the city of Tōkyō, Temples or even landscapes, want to testify to this indiscernible presence that we can feel in Japan but also from the materialization of this telluric energy. And it is precisely this muted, unspeakable vibration that makes Japan what it is, both mysterious and fascinating. But if we agree to listen more than to express ourselves then, we will be able to perceive these invisible forces.
