三重塔

位于日本兵库加古川市的鹤林寺其实是一座历史悠久的佛教寺院,建筑群和经塔可以追朔到公元592年的飞鸟时期。只是因为不在京都或者奈良这样的历史名城所以并不为外界,尤其是海外旅行者所知。对于云昭来说这反倒是一个很安静的摄影场所,很难想像在京都清水寺或者奈良东大寺这样游客络绎不绝的景点能找到合适的角度,更不用提在镜头面前驻足观看和拉住艺术家问这问那的人。在寺内匆匆浏览过,去过钟楼,看过藏经楼,到大堂和侧殿拜过菩萨之后,云昭把目光锁定在三重塔上。因为不对外开放里面样子不得而知,根据经验塔一般是佛教寺庙存放经卷的地方,在艺术家的故乡内蒙古,因为紊信黄教而有众多形式的佛塔,小时曾去过北魏时期石头结构的白塔。日本的木制结构塔有抗震弹性的同时抗火性很差,在战乱或者雷电打击下很容易经楼俱焚,一般来说有文物价值的经文已经不会存放在内。在按动快门的同时希望赋予森亚这样的含义:不拘泥于经文的物件而留存其内涵于心中。

Pagoda

Being a national treasure of Japan and famous for its bodhisattva sculpture and architectures dated as back as Asuka Era(592–710), Kakurin Temple has got all the historical references despite a lack of world-known exposure compared to its cousins in Kyoto or Nara. For Yun it is rather a quiet place to operate, can’t imagine how it could be done with hordes of tourists showing up in front camera while asking this and that, he briefly took a walk around, went to the bell tower, visited the main hall and said hello to Buddha then started the shot. Not sure what scripture is inside the tower or none at all due to precaution of fire, for all the lores and morals lies in his root Senya will remember for his life since pagoda is already inside.
