About the artwork

Weaving FRP farming wire with the rinko weave used in bamboo craft, parasol units were made and then connected together creating this space. The land is a fallow field beside a shrine that softly embraces it, while it also is fused together with the surrounding natural environment. The installation allows for the two special characteristics to co-exist. Ivy vines intertwine, insects and small animals show themselves, and visitors can decorate the objects with strips of paper they have written their wishes on, and sit and relax on the benches. The space is mixed with many possibilities for interaction, as is the life found in the mixed forest around it.
