京都 法然院 ガラス枯山水「つながる」
Karesansui Garden ’Eternal Affinity' Honen-in temple, Kyoto.
"Eternal Affinity" is made of the object by melting recycled glass bottles that lived with us.
The life of a living thing circulates and is connected forever like light and water.
It is an art space that can be think about the relationship between universe and your own existence.
His method of using molten recycled bottles has a purpose that is two fold. One, to help preserve the environment and two, to help preserve the memory of the individuals who used the bottels. A concept that produces reborn structures that are physically momentary and psychologically eternal.
Still evident in some parts of the new structures are clearly visible remanence of the original glass bottles they were born from.
Another favorability of the use of glass structures in Nishinaka’s Zen gardens, is the unique ability to take advantage of light and moon reflections at night. An unparalleled characteristic that no traditional zen garden made with natural stone can produce.
