Hagakure

300kg of iron sand flows down continuously from a height of 7 meters, at the center of an open atrium. A mountain of sand quietly takes shape, starting from nothing. The particle size of this iron sand is strictly aligned: the particles reflect the light and glitter. Emotion, thought, and life itself exist, invisibly, inside time. <D.W>

吹き抜けの中央、高さ7mから300㎏の砂鉄が流れ落ち続ける。何もないところから始まり、砂の山が静かに作られていく。砂鉄は厳密に粒度が揃えられ、光を反射し煌めく。感情、思考、生命は目に見えない時間の中に存在する。
