In Tractatus Logico•Philosophicus, Ludwig Wittgenstein said “the limit of my language means the limit of my world.” It means that our ability of conception stays under the linguistic limitation. For example, a person who is thinking with 100 words is hard to understand the wide thinking scope of someone who is thinking with a thousand words. The person with 1,000 words lives in a different world from the person with a hundred words. It means that the range of understanding the knowledge and world depends on his language. A person who does not know ‘love’, ‘overflowing’, and ‘the world’ will never understand ‘the world of overflowing love’ even though the world is overflowing with love. Because there is no such a concept in his mind. In a word, his world is confined and dark like in a well. Knowing a language deeply and widely appears in a different type in the photo series of Dimension Finder and it is ‘seeing the world that can not be seen’. It is to give the enhancement of thinking to the viewers. It is a ‘drawing the limit in the distance’ as Wittgenstein said and in other words, enlargement of conception range. The enhanced conception does not stop there but rather enlarges its range continuously. The driving force is ‘curiosity’. Knowing is connected to another knowing. The development of thinking continues without stopping as long as it is started.
