This work, "Breath, That Time", is the second work in the "Breath of the Forest" series, following "Breath of the Forest", which was exhibited outdoors at Art Document in 2014. In the previous work, the wind blowing through the forest moved a large paper and bamboo sculpture, which in turn generated sound. This time, the wind blowing through the forest moved a large paper and bamboo sculpture, which in turn generated sound. This time, a fan and other coincidental elements were used to create a device that generates sound by moving a device in the strow pile by strings connected to a sliding shoji. The shoji, made of paper and wood, gently allows light and air to pass through and softly divides the inside and outside of the room. Combined with a fan, they have become a familiar sight in Japanese homes, and many people may even feel nostalgic about them now. The combination of a fan and an air conditioner in a closed space gives a sense of openness that is different from that of air conditioning. The installation is an attempt to make visitors feel the presence of wind more vividly by converting the flow of air into sound through a device installed in a pile of straw, and to make them think about how nature and people should coexist in balance in a space that creates a nostalgic yet unsettling atmosphere. The installation is an attempt to make visitors think about how nature and people should coexist in balance.
