Four Seasons, a 1000 Years, Terraced Rice Fields - Tashibunosho

The scenery of Tashibunosho is unchanged over thousands of years, it is depicted here through the lives of the people who continue to live in harmony with nature in the perpetual landscape.

The picture changes throughout the day. It grows brighter as the sun rises, and it becomes aglow with the setting sun. As the night deepens, darkness sets in. The artwork synchronises with the actual sunrise and sunset at Tashibunosho.

The landscape and people’s lives change together with the four seasons.

Mirroring nature, which is fluid and is in constant change, this work if viewed on the same day the following year will appear different. The picture of this moment exists only now; you will never be able to see it again. A new landscape is constantly be born for eternity.
