About the artwork

“Surrounded by mountains of vibrating speakers, the local people and malfunctioning mountains play gate ball together. Judges look at mountains and send regular signs as the game progresses. Such signs are also seen by the mountain players and spectators and thus people in the venue also experience the mountains. The Mountain range of speakers sometimes echoes with wooden spirits, resonating with the cheers of the spectators. The heat from the gate ball field will rise like steam from the public bath and take us to the South American continent.” (Excerpts of the artist’s comment)
