I and Thou

"I and Thou" is an early philosophical book by Martin Buber that delves into the exploration of the concept of "relationship." This influential work laid the groundwork for later philosophers to ponder the intricate dynamics between 'I,' 'Thou,' and 'It.' In this work, I showed my mysterious interaction with trees, flowers and the sea from my perspective. There is a vague and mysterious barrier between me and them. I put this sense of mystery into this video.
The music for this video comes from the Japanese musician Susumu Yokota, "9 Petals", and the nine petals meaning spirituality.
