In this installation piece, landscape of mountain and sea is constructed using daily materials according to the geographic feature of Kobe where this work has been exhibited. In this work there are elements of fashion, sort of tacky products we see in our daily lives that are not considered to be arty, such as reversible objects, electronic parts, etc. There is a strong connection between landscape and nature. This work deals with  “landscape”, which is commonly used in art work,  based on the idea that nature does not only signify mountain or sea but also our daily life itself that consists of  so called “unnatural” and “artificial” materials.
