Unasaka

Tidal currents expressed with vapor and light

Within a century-old house that once belonged to the head fisherman, the artist replicates the intricate tidal currents that flow around Honjima. Illuminated by laser lights, vapor swirls like the surface of the sea when the air is disturbed by movement. This experiential installation conjures up the lives and customs of local fishermen, who faced danger daily. Unasaka, which means the boundary between the human world and that of the mythical sea god, evokes the border between life and death, and between tranquility and danger.
