■ A "diagonally slanted tube"


・A story about "bamboo"

Planned Location: Former Fukuma Town, Fukuoka Prefecture

In this area, there is a shrine called Miyajitake Shrine, which is said to have been founded about 1,700 years ago. Every October, a festival called the "Yoi-miya Tomyo Kigan-sai" is held, during which worshippers light sacred fire on about 3,000 bamboo lanterns on which they have written their wishes, praying for their wishes to come true.


"Taketori Monogatari" - The oldest existing Japanese "monogatari" (story)

It was created about 1,000 years ago (early Heian period). The author is unknown. It is a legendary tale about a bamboo cutter who discovers a baby girl inside a shining bamboo stalk and raises her as his own child. However, after various incidents resulting from her beauty, she eventually ascends to the moon.


・Project - An "extremely small space'" where the host and guest confront each other.


The former agricultural warehouse in which the artist who was born and raised in the former Fukuma Town is currently being used as an atelier. A "diagonally slanted tube" was inserted into the open space where the H-shaped steel beams and round steel braces flew above. An acrylic plate imitating a shoji screen, which transmits a faint light, is supported by a frame shaped like a leaf and placed on the top cross-sectional surface. The entrance to this "diagonally slanted tube" functions as a gateway to another dimension that scales down, and visitors fall into a feeling of having entered inside the "bamboo".


The "light rays" that enter through the slit windows, which were penetrated to incorporate light from the windows on the outer wall of the warehouse, are located on the center axis of the four tatami mats laid inside. The "light ray" from this slit window serves as the boundary where the owner and the guest face each other.


The interior and exterior walls were coated with a mixture of locally sourced soil and susa-fibers, applied as-is and left to dry naturally. When the earth walls dry, they gradually crack and sometimes peel off. The changing process is the very fragility of living nature itself.


The floor finish inside is mortar mixed with sand and cement, which is imagined to be the "sea". On top of that, a natural igusa tatami mat is placed, creating a "ground" where people reside.


The exterior podium was created by embedding glass shards, obtained by breaking glass bottles, into white mortar by hand. After drying, it is polished to achieve a finish known as "terrazzo," an artificial marble-like material. The podium functions as a "barrier" to another world for visitors.


In this "diagonally slanted tube," that has been inserted into the former agricultural warehouse, visitors can scale themselves down by surpassing the barrier and enter the inside of the 'bamboo.' While feeling the fragility of nature, it stands amidst the disorderly warehouse and welcomes the visitors as an "extremely small space" where the host and guest confront each other.
