This piece stands on a green hill overlooking the sea as a single work of landscape art. On a site with old pergolas (pavilion posts) and using a disused sake tank from a local brewery, the artist creates a boat-themed installation with sailing poles, girders, and ropes. The poles are square and designed with the giant Kiriko lantern floats of Oku-Noto in mind. The composition is based on the principle of the golden ratio using the Fibonacci sequence of numbers. The work also functions like a “harp” when wind causes a part of the ropes to vibrate, with the liquor tank acting as a resonator to produce the sound of the wind.
