Brocken 6

Installed on top of a shallow river, this work made use of the reflections from the water surface. Visitors dip their feet into the cold water and enter into the work to appreciate it. When the fluctuations on the water surface calm down, the surface becomes akin to a mirror, and the viewer has the experience of floating in midair. The “6” in the title comes from the fact that there are 6 surfaces of light here: front and back, right and left, and top and bottom. <D.W>

浅い川の上に設置し、水面の反射を利用。冷たい水に足を浸し、内部に入り鑑賞する。水面の揺らぎがおさまると、水面は鏡のようになり、鑑賞者は宙に浮いているような体験をする。タイトルには前後左右、上下の6つの光の面を持つことから6の番号が付けられた。
