Tree of knowledge
This artworks is at a car park in Nakanojo city.
The works image is a metaphor of a nuclear plant.
Inside of the works is very dark, and there are some backlight equipments.
I weaved within a metaphor of the Buddhism sculpture shape by thin silk strings in the inside.
People can see radioactive substances by a reflection of black light's ultraviolet in a darkroom.
The artworks inside is same condition to see radioactive substances, but people see Buddha's shape by thin silk strings inside.
And, I set real lotuses inside.
It is image of the lotus flower base for Buddha.
Plants can grow up by black light's ultraviolet in darkroom.
Then, the top solar power panels are generating electricity for black lights.
