White clouds are floated in the blue breezy sky. Stars slightly twinkle in the pale night city. Water movements silently recur on the lake. The earth has ever been moving in the cosmos. We are standing there. We can sense the truth despite that is not easy. Some poets and artists have been representing the truth. One of them is Alberto Giacometti(1901-1966), he was a sculptor also a painter. In both of his art styles, he had been representing the core of our existences that have transformative repetition to be and not to be(absence). 70% of a human body must be water. Water is ever flowing, never stopped, never defined the form. Water could include everything also streaming into something. Our existences have transformative repetition like water. We have been mutually affected in the world. He tried to curtail whole of these mixtures from a human body, and remained the only core of existence in his artwork. Oppositely, Keisuke Takeda, he attempted to draw movements of a human form that include all mixtures as same as water on his painting. Through this practice, he realized, all of us have ever been moving that are never stopped in the unredeemable time stream as mortal.
