About the artwork

Three musical instruments are set up in the forest. Visitors can freely make sounds while playing the instruments. “Slitar” is a word made up from “slide guitar” and “sitar.” On some of the slitars, the pitch can be adjusted, making them sound like indian classical instruments. Each of the three instruments has a different resonance and they are placed facing each other so that you can hear the sound of the others. When visitors play the instrument, harmonizing with the surrounding nature — for a fleeting moment, an orchestra is generated in the forest.
