Based on the research of Kadoya region which the exhibition venue located, I created an installation which consists of video, a structure as screen, and soil.

The starting point of this work was to have seen the change of the mountain. At first time I saw it, the slope of it was collapsed by landslide. Next time, the entire mountain had been covered completely with concrete. Interested in the change, I filmed some points of view around this natural disaster. The video consists of the sound of two interviews and some scenes progressing in parallel. These fragments are linked each other by zooming in/out and similarity of their figures. One of interviewee is a curator of natural museum in Kadoya and the other is a employee of the company which covered the slope with concrete.


Video images are following:

The workshop scenes that four people are playing with mud and creating childish miniature of landscape.

The slope covered with concrete.

The scenery and things associated with water.

A walking ant observed with magnifying glass.

Aerial video of Tanada (a groups of rice fields made on the slope of mountain. It’s said that keeping Tanada can prevent the soil-slide).
