This site is at a plateau in Amabiki Village. I love the ever-changing scenery of this place, where a 1400-square meter marsh gently melds into the surrounding forest. I’ll never forget when I first laid eyes on the marsh, a meeting that inspired me to create objects that could float upon its surface — wire mesh bodies suspended on a raft along with giant synthetic fiber leaves which I arranged to resemble a Lotus flower. The weight of the water, the movement of the wind, the power of buoyancy — these are all concepts I wished to weave into this piece.
