A peaceful space lled with solemn sounds
In a converted rice warehouse, recordings of Shodoshima temple bells and sounds from a soy sauce factory emerge quietly from multiple speakers. The sounds disturb the surface of the water, and the ripples are projected onto a screen in real time. Shodoshima is home to many sacred places, including its own 88-temple pilgrimage circuit, where people have worshipped since ancient times. This work focuses on this feature of the island.
