Image capturing Map of the Ground

Mikawadai Park
[Participation fee]
The map is a tool that uses human footprints and viewpoints to document our stay on the earth. The paths walked by living things become roads that connect and intersect, while lights and views continue to shift. The ground is like a living being that breathes and evolves. By seizing that ground, we can create a “Map of the ground”.
Walk with the flow of people to the intersection. Follow the highway that passes overhead, and as you descend the hill, you’ll arrive at Mikawadai Park, filled with trees that provide shade during the day and wait in quiet at night.
