About This Artwork

The scene is at the now abandoned Sanada Primary School. The main characters are the three students who were the last to attend the school, and the space is used as if part of a picture book. The objects that can be found in the school building are objects of nature that have been painted, including driftwood and nuts collected from around the seashore of the Izu Peninsula and the Sea of Japan. At the entrance of the building is an enormous bamboo fountain run by water that is shaped like a locust. This provides power to run the objects inside. The artist attempts to recreate the once vibrant life in the school of students, teachers, and even ghosts.
