Artwork No. 009
Art House Project "Kadoya"
The first in the Art House Project series, the exterior of this restored 200-year-old building features a stucco finish, smoked cedar boards and traditional roof tiles. Inside, however, visitors discover a pool of water illuminated by 125 blinking LED digital counters. Local residents set the speed at which the counters blink, marking the project as the first to involve locals in its creation.
Art House Project
The Art House Project restores traditional Naoshima houses, temples and shrines and transforms them into art spaces. Located in a ‘living’ district, they are interwoven with memories of a time when these dwellings were homes. The project began in 1998, and seven buildings are currently open to the public.
