"Improvisational Art: Invisible Thread"


The Tsukuba Rocks existed on the surface of Mount Tsukuba prior to the time human beings discovered stoneware. Contrarily, the trees can be seen as a metaphor for the activities of all contemporary living beings. I wound pieces of traditionally woven kimono cloth on the long white line that connected the pair of rocks and the tree. This improvisational artwork derived from a sense of intuition I had here at this site.
