“Gekkaten” is the point on the ground where the moon reaches the zenith. Japan, which lies north of the tropics, has no such point. Moreover, during the exhibition, the angle of the moon’s rise will gradually decline towards summer solstice. Nevertheless, at the “place” of the installation, the impression will be that the moon has risen directly overhead. The sculpture is a “sign” linking the moon and humanity, and is also a “shelter” that succeeds the moon.
