Provisional Assembly of Hypotheses – formation of cairn –

Floating box in the air surrounded by the mountains in Hakone.
This box was created by one sculptor*.
And this inside necessarily has the void.
The void doesn't just mean the empty.
To have innumerable further expressions has been taken into consideration in advance.
And the infinite change of this void defines the existence of this box.

* Bukichi Inoue 1930 - 1997 sculptor : He planned the Hakone Open-Air Museum in 1969.

Workshop
“Let’s make the mountain of Hakone by clay!”

15-16.Sep.2018 / 11am-12pm / 14pm-15pm
number of participants: approximately 100

In the workshop which was held four times in two days, each participant created mountains of Hakone by oil-based clay as each feeling scene.
Approximately 100 clay mountains were put in the inside of work as hypotheses about the mountains in Hakone.
And this work was completed as the provisional assembly work.

The mountains in Hakone have been used as motifs for various expression media since ancient times.
It may be largely due to the geographical and social factors of Hakone, such as a dangerous spot, an important point, and a checkpoint on the Tokaido.

The image of mountains in Hakone emerges as a pile by assembling and collaging countless expressions created by individual feeling scenes.
 
It seems like a structure of "Cologne" in which all stones include various feelings and are piled up innumerably and collapsed and deformed repeatedly.
