Temporary fences that are lined the construction site.
It's the obvious thing, but the "under construction" condition is inside the fence.
And it means the place where something is created.

In 1964, when Genpei Akasegawa created "Canned Universe", the world was reversed and everything was wrapped inside. *
The inside becomes to the outside, the outside becomes to the inside.
So it would mean that the "under construction" condition is the whole world and our daily lives.

In this space outside the fence, plants with ambiguous and Rakugo (traditional comic storytelling) properties such as aconite and Japan helwingia grow.
And there is also a gaze of empathy for their lives.

By such the sequence of fortuitous connections, it is accelerated that the 'pataphysical thinking between the whole world inside the fence and us.

* In 1964, Genpei Akasegawa, the Japanese avant-garde artist, created a sculptural piece called "Canned Universe".


The queen crab metamorphoses into the bone club at this club.
It is thrown into the sky spreading beyond the overgrown trees with the white rising flow.

From the 21 century of forest and park to the 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Voyager as pioneer continues to seek its own position in the infinite universe, even after nuclear energy control became to be uncontrollable.
