6.(SORA) (2021)

Material: The wood was collected from demolition sites and timber dealers' yards, unwanted and lying around Tāmaki Makaurau. The other material, Kanazawa gold leaves contain 94.4% gold (24k) at 1/10,000mm thickness (0.1 μm). The black paint on the timber is called ‘Shibuzumi’. It’s Japanese traditional nature plant.

In recent years, we seem to have had more time to look up at the sky and pray for our ancestors, families, and friends. Our life simultaneously has been forced to change on a global scale because of unknown viruses, racial movements, and global warming, which is only accelerating. In 2021, it should not sound like an exaggeration to declare it a humanitarian climate emergency. The simple binary opposition of "environment or economy" prevails; such conversations are typically conveyed through old-fashioned language and ideas.

6. (SORA) represents a mirror-like existence of our hearts. We pray and breathe together. Even if our physical appearance looks different, our minds can gradually overlap. Perhaps, the time we look up at the sky will be extended more. 6. (SORA) can become our home where we let our hearts rest.
