Statement  ----------

It entrusts love and safety to the work.
The happy world that is fought, hatred, and not envied.
It sincerely wishes such pleasure to be able to be shared with people all over the world.
It is not an explanation.
It is not a protest.
It is not an instructions.
It is not the one understood from the word in the much more.
It feels, and the energy that the work shoots sounds and it extends.

What is AOHITO-kun  ----------

We need War in this world ? I don't think so. I have heard from parents and Gran parents whom were suffered world war 2, it was incredible tragedy.
AOHITO palnet where AOHITO-kun was born have no war, because the sky and sea always are shinning blue .
Of course they have small dispute and fighting.
AOHITO-kun is messanger of Love and relief(Peace).
 

Why did AOHITO-kun come up in my mind ----------

A day in year 2000 I have read an article what the blood of horseshoe crab alive since 3billion years is blue.
I have suddenly inspired "If our human beeing would have blue blood as the horse shoe crab, We also would be able to live for 3billion years !
So AOHITO-kun was born.(see work)

Why did I name Hormone Sekine----------

This is nickname, not my real name. My name is Kanji Sekine.
Hormone means that we have in my body producing chemical substance for keeping own life and metabolism as like a messanger from cell to cell. In fact it is very similar phenomeno of ART also known as MEME( culutural Gene what Biologist Richard Dorkins said).
Other hands, my activities has been increasing in Club or alternative space instead of gallery. Meantime, it was better to name more friendly and memorable as like DJ.
