Exchange activity

Produced the installation "iNSIDE eNCOUNTERS(tTE IABYRINTH rEVISITED)" using a corner of the Open Studio as exhibition space. Wire art objects were produced, and cord lattices were placed on floor, ceiling and all four walls, while the entire array was covered in white ribbons. This strange, maze-like space astounded visitors. The countless ribbons were attached by the volunteer staff members and other people visiting the studio. In Asaji Town, Oita Prefecture the artist worked with junior high school students to create a vortex pattern in dried grasses on the hillside.He earned respect with his silent determination to continue the project to completion.
