About the artwork

This work is based on the theme of “rice,” which is symbolic of the area. Inside the rice-shaped object, covered with Uonuma Koshihikari brand rice bags, the visitors spent time quietly listening to sound selected by the artist. The artist stayed in the area for a number of days to look for materials and created the work with supporters. The visitors found themselves swallowed in rice which they normally eat unconsciously, and were encouraged to think about rice in a rice-producing area. [Architectural design: P.A.
