Peering into the Seabed
An installation evoking island scenery and history
Long ago, the five Yoshima islands were one land mass. With the formation of the Seto Inland Sea, the lowlying areas filled with water, leaving the hilltops as five distinct islands. Inside a beach house, sand, video images, and rising and ebbing water have been used to reproduce the changing landscape of the Seto Inland Sea. The work is a sensitive portrayal of the Setouchi landscape as an extension of the sea's history.
