  • Shape of endless

    White granite

    117×105×94 (h)cm

    I want to create one big crystal-like mass that is innitely connected and from which all unnecessary parts have been cut away.

  • crossroad

    Granite, Iron
    242×242×145 (h)cm

    The steel plate that split the stone still splits the space where the work stands and impinges directly on that space, giving just a little tension to the scenery I have looked at until now. The images changes further with time and position, and the scenes in my memory intersect.

  • The horizontal hole and vertical hole

    Granite, Hume pipe

    183×203×134 (h)cm

  • A sign

    Black granite, White granite

  • Slit in cube

    120×90×111 cm

    2700 kg

  • Coexistence connection

    Black granite, Concrete, Iron

    Coexistence annulus

    When I visited this wood before, looking for a site, it was much denser and harder to move around in. With the undergrowth cut back after the end of winter, the wood is much less dense, and it is easy to look across the little shrine in the center. It is also possible to measure the passage of time. Similarly, the created works seem to soak up the amount of time you spend moving among them. I think that is the source of their gravity, as distinct from their weight.

  • South cylinder

    Black granite, Concrete

    97×97×110 cm
    1720 kg

    The flow of the river, rice paddies, fields, houses and plant life is in a uniformly north-south direction. I felt as if they were moving north to south, imperceptibly and slowly, in the same way as the air density. The physical problem with the work I planned to put here I could visualize, so it was more important to make a form that would take in the surroundings, take them in and let them flow out.

  • Involved stone

    Stone, Concrete

    200×167×110 cm
