White Division, 2006

Tokyo National University of Art and Music, Toride, Japan

There are two view points of the work, and an area in the middle at the foot of the work where people cannot access. The windowpane at the front of the work is knocked to make a sound. From the upper view point, the work hides itself and people cannot see downstairs. They can only hear the sound of the knocking and only imagine someone’s existence even though they are in the same space. From the frontal point of view, the great glass window separates the work and the people on the upper deck from the viewer. They can see all the work, but cannot share the space. The windowpane is making sounds but no one is there. The work divides relationships, but each person can define the meaning of the division.
