Thousand images of Buddist in Jiorama


Tokyo university of the Arts, Toride-shi, Ibaragi, Feb, 2007

A thousand pairs of shoes that I gathered from my neighbourhood,

Whose invisible owners are replaced by new visitors.

They select a pair

And in return leave a footprint

And are photographed as a momentary Buddha.


The shoes and people of the past are stored in a shoebox

In an ongoing process.
