"ART SESSION Tsukuba 2015" exhibition

I installed my sculpture in a garden of an old farm house in the foothills of Tsukuba-mountain.
A little breathing starts in a hard boulder when all drill holes are connected inside.
Although it already completed my sculpture's concept when a little breathing starts, I really want to see all breathing shape in a boulder. So I start to excavate all holes.
It needs a lot of times, so many days to excavat holes, anyhow I can't stop excavation although I understand it's so hard work also needs a lot of times.
I spent one and half years in the total number of days for this excavation. I don't care it's an art or not.

Finally, breathing shape looks like a sparkler.
