Seiichi Niikuni (新国誠一)


Seiichi Niikuni (新国誠一)




 











 
"The kanji at the bottom means ama or rain, which becomes, after some manipulation, a little house in a rainstorm" : musique-concrete.tumblr.com





 

"“基” uses two kanji – 土: land, earth – and 基: foundation, base. The poem is visually very striking, and brings to mind rows of memorial markers stretching into the horizon, with the kanji for “foundation” appearing only minutely in the background. The vastness of the natural world, with hints to its connections with life/death, and the very small “human” base element are central to this work" : 6angryalphanerds.com
