Moshi Moshi, Tsukuyomi

"Moshi Moshi, Tsukuyomi" is a contemporary artwork that features a young girl holding a landline telephone, looking intently at the receiver. The title is a combination of "Moshi Moshi," a Japanese greeting commonly used when answering the phone, and "Tsukuyomi," a Shinto god associated with the moon and time. The artwork could be interpreted as a commentary on the impact of technology on communication and the passing of time. The landline phone represents a bygone era when people had more patience and took the time to connect with others in a meaningful way, while the girl's expression suggests a longing for that kind of connection. The juxtaposition of the old-fashioned phone and the contemporary title also highlights the tension between tradition and modernity in Japanese culture.
