Animals of Flowers, Symbiotic Lives in the Stone Wall - Fukuoka Castle Ruins

The resisting and resonating ovoids placed in the castle ruins, together with the trees of the castle, shine brightly. The light of the ovoids and the light of the trees are autonomous, they shine brightly and then fade slowly, as if breathing.


When the resonating ovoids are pushed, or when people get close to the trees, the colour of the light they emit changes, and the colour of that light resonates out to other ovoids and trees nearby. A sound tone resonates out continuously in the same way as the light.


If a wave of light comes from the other side of the castle, it signifies that there is another person in that location. As a result, people gain a heightened sense of awareness of the presence of other people in the same space.
