Kamikoani Project 2019
“Human formation-moving body- human becoming "
I built a tent in the mountains of Yagisawa, Kamikoani Village, and spent some time there.
I boiled water from a nearby stream and drank it with those who came.
I kept a journal of the little things I discovered at the place and made a small map of the surroundings.
The tent is a mobile home.
I painted on the outside of the tent, or skin as we call the body, at the Okidamen venue.
It is a ritual to connect the dwelling place to one's body.
In the past, human beings used caves, which were also their dwellings, as wombs, and performed the ritual of being born again inside them.
The human being is generated in a moving body.
