Kinoura Bay is known as being a particularly beautiful place on the Sotoura Coast. The artist is interested in the uniqueness of the Noto Peninsula, which juts out from Japan’s main island of Honshu, and Suzu, which is located at the tip of the peninsula. He will install three “Infinity” sculptures on the beach resembling transmitter and receiver devices that collect and reflect light from the sky at a 45-degree angle. This is the 43rd work in the “Infinity” series, which Deacon started in 2001. The sculpture contains mathematical and physical elements. The roots of the artist’s production—science fiction, space, and networks—shape the work.
