About the artwork

The reason I wished to produce my work here is that there was a swimming pool. However, while cutting and welding iron together with children, I felt it would be nice if I could stay here in the open field (former schoolyard) with the children. I felt that I cannot immediately visualize what children and I felt, and time will make our feelings into reality. Someday I would like to come back here and stand in the leaves accumulated in the pool.
