Installation views

This artwork consists of several cubes arranged in a gallery.
Ink leaks onto the glass plate from a crack made of pine resin, and an imaginary map appears as it dries.
This cube symbolizes the well.It imitates the cube that is actually used in the Japanese Noh stage performance “Izutsu”.

The title "topoanalyse" was quoted from Gaston Bachelard's book "The Poetics of Space".
The ink map changed day by day, and I was able to observe the changes in the imaginary topographic map.
