Drop / 2006 / 5000×6000×H.3400mm / Water、Wood、Aluminum、FRP / Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennial
A shallow wading pool was created in a room of former branched school. A white Tsumari-shaped sculpture was hung from the celling. The pool, giving the atmosphere of children who used to study here, reflected the celling sculpture onto the water surface. Drop water occasionally fell from the very point of Mitsuyama on the Tsumari-shaped sculpture, forming pattern in the water.In this work, the artist expressed that the small drops from the Mitsuyama community where just six households remain at present, would make ripples and stir various things and spread over.
