Abyss creator, motoko Moonwall died on 4th Feb, 2016 on lung cancer. When the cancer was found in hospital, the cancer already metastasized to lymph node, and she soon deteriorated into coma. So I couldn't talk with her at all in real life, but I visited her room and talked with her mother and close relatives, I could know her better than before.Photographs by motoko Moonwall (Touch for full size)
She sent a message which encouraged her friend before but it is also her last word why she devoted all her energy into building museums.
<< I wouldn't say hang in there. >>
I tell you I neither believe in nor expect a reward from this miserable world.
It is exactly the same with all the people around me including my family.
I never expect affection, friendship or sympathy to me from them.
They change quite readily with time and are too uncertain to be relied on.
It is a rare fortune if they continue even a short period.
It is indeed so as I believe that no one can really understand me and share the feeling with me.
I am no one else but me, and am alone in this void and dark, billions light-years-wide universe.
And yet, I try hard to do as far as I can to improve this insignificant, miserable, and uncertain social world and to connect people who can't understand one another.
I do it not for others but for myself.
Before long, I'll cease to breathe and I'll be reduced to nothingness.
I firmly believe that there is no afterlife. I'll be completely lost and nothing will be left behind me.
However, at this last moment, I'll be able to shout to the void which will soon fully embrace me,
"Shit! Over my dead body! Anyway, I did all I could do!"
