267 Sky


“267sky(Portraits of the houses there was 250 years ago)” / 2008 / woods, painted / AOBA+ART 2008

250 years ago, there were 267 houses. It is now the oldest record of this city, where about 70,000 people live.
Each of the 267 boards painted in various sky colors is cut out of the house shape that would have been there before. It is, so to speak, a form where absence is shaped, and it is the landscape of the current residential area that viewer can see through that form.
The colors of the sky and the history of the city synchronize in the flowing time.
