Exhibition: Window

The Works of Living World

@ STARNET ZONE (Mashiko Tochigi, 2005)

This was Living World’s first formal solo show, held at the hilltop gallery in Mashiko, STARNET ZONE.
We titled the show “Window”, and produced eight works which act as windows onto the living world around us.
Here we also presented our second version of Wind-lit, first shown as a prototype in 2001.

→ Wind-lit: Solar
→ In this time
→ Beyond our solar system
→ Living plant time
→ Starry day
→ As the sun sees it
→ Freeze fired
→ Table of sounds
