The decisive wisdom can break traditions and overthrown the known values attached to the things. I eager to stay playful after attained this quality. Ango Sakaguchi wrote in his Bad boys and Christianity, “Knowledge is about finding the boundaries.” Knowing the boundaries make a person exceptional. But it is different in modern times by which only progression is valued. Eventually people cross their boundaries. At this moment, I do not consider myself as a good student. I think policies existed to be broken and ignored. On the other hand, self-discipline is to be guarded with life. At the same time, I resent all authorities, policies and systems. My inspiration of this series is drawn from the pressure in math classes, as I was forced to repeat the known knowledge and belittled as a puppy. I enjoy being in the minority. My empathy and compassion only belong to the social minority. I did not choose the minority; rather it is my resentment from instincts to be in the majority. Such sentiment might be somewhere in my body, similar to Yohji Yamamoto’s opinion that he cannot manage his anger. My resentment is an unmovable bomb lives next to my heart and my stomach. People living in the peripheral do not choose their lives either, because they have been paralyzed in inequality and irrational prejudices. If we forgot them, the attempted novelty will not resonate with them at all.
