jibun ga jibun ni naranai de dare ga jibun ni naru (?)
AIDA Mitsuo

This phrase asks us to consider who we are, and who we will become if we try to be someone we are not. My response is an attempt to capture musically the powerful yet unassuming simplicity of both the words themselves and their appearance on the page. The "identity" of the text is revealed as it is gradually built up from its component sounds, with close attention paid to Ma, a Japanese concept of relative space. The title aida is the kanji character used to represent Ma, !, but the alternate pronunciation "aida" (eye-dah) is taken as it is homophonic with the calligrapher's name.
