Kenichiro Ina, Staying / Walking, 1972

The work uses sound as a medium to record human’s simplest and most primitive acts, “walking” and “staying,” through a definite period of time. Sounds captured by cassette recorder themselves only refer back to what they originally indicate. However, to put recording between self and the world (things except one’s self) would enable the contemplation of phenomena between a subject and its externalities, or phenomena outside the recorded.
