About This Artwork

A shallow wading pool was created in a room of a former branch school. A white Tsumari-shaped sculpture was hung from the ceiling. The pool, giving the atmosphere of children who used to study here, reflected the ceiling sculpture onto the water surface. Drops of water occasionally fell from the very point of Mitsuyama on the Tsumari-shaped sculpture, forming patterns in the water. In this work, the artist expressed his desire that the small drops from the Mitsuyama community, where just six households remain at present, would make ripples and stir various things and spread over.
