For centuries, Amanohashidate has been known
as one of the “Three Most Scenic Views of Japan.”
The uniqueness of the sand spit has inspired human beings
since ancient times, and is the subject of many mythical stories. On this special occasion, sound artist Marihiko Hara who works on the texture / the silence of the soundscape,
and lighting designer Shiho Nagamachi who creates
the lights arrangement in the environments,
will turn the Amanohashidate beach
into a dream-like atmosphere of sound and light.

Amanohashidate, one of Japan’s “three most scenic spots,”
features a project called “Between Reality and Fantasy,”
which uses light, moving image, and sound to create a fantastical experience. The artwork “Double Horizon” intends to describe
the original meaning of “Amanohashidate.”
In the Japanese language, both the sea and the sky are called “Ama."
Why are these two different elements expressed with the same sound?
Saito’s installation work suggests a space that
—derived from the origin of Amanohashidate—looks beyond the horizon.
The work will be exhibited at the approach to Motoise Kono Shrine,
a sacred place that inherently occupies a liminal margin between two worlds. Please feel free to experience this artwork, which makes use of looming fog and projections to give us the illusion of a three-dimensional sea surface, or flowing clouds.
