Moving territory – Kamiyama


Kamibun College, Kamiyama, Japan
Parquet floor, wheels, paint, 380 x 160 x 13 cm

A section of parquet floor has been assembled and then cut following the contour of the town of Kamiyama. This « town-shape » glides across the floor supported by 41 wheel bearings. The spectator is invited to interact with the piece.
One can move freely whilst remaining in the same territory, or, put another way, the piece suggests the possibility of being everywhere without leaving home. A dream, or a nightmare ?
