"What will he find eventually when a Japanese man, who experienced the death of his mother in his childhood, or a total termination of life, continues seeking the forms of what keep him alive in a large city which is changing nature into gray, inorganic ruins day by day? The answer will be the forms of life, nature, and respite from the din of everyday life. Urban life, however, offers such forms only in fragments, or what is worse, in consumptive fragments.

T. Ichimura's eyes convert these fragments into symbols, and he tries to extract life and nature from such symbols. His eroticism is formed during the process of converting the fragments into symbols through his sharp insight into the surrounding objects.

T. Ichimura's desire is always clouded with self-dislike, intercepted, and gasping. And the more his desire gasps, the more vivid his eroticism becomes."

Jun Eto
