In Akiyama-go, located deep in a valley, one can find the remains of a branch school of Nakatsu-kyo Primary School which was closed down 11 years ago. The pool is a place where pupils used to swim. play and shout for joy. I wanted to reproduce this flickering scenery which many pupils would have seen, by pouring water on the glass.
