Tunnel of Light (Kiyotsukyo Tunnel)

L sub
Kikyotsukyo Tunnel was refurblished as an artwork in time for ETAT2018. The artwork transformed the tunnel with history into an architectural space with an artistic atomosphere by utilising five elements of nature (wood, earth, metal, fire and water). It invites viewers, including both locals and visitors, to review the relation between human and nature and also re-connect them to the overwhelming beauty of the place.
