About the artwork

An aquarium where the school of sardines and great white sharks are swimming around and giant spider crabs are walking around appears in the underground gate-ball field. By assembling wood from local workshops and sawmills that are no longer needed and transforming them into real-size animals, containers with the energy of life, the artist gives a new value to the scrap wood and sublimates them into a new life. By seeing living creatures in the unique forms of scrap wood, sea creatures created swim freely in the underground space.
