Here are some images of our Bamboo Princess installation at Takehara. Our inspiration came from the 10th Century Japanese folk tale: Kaguya Hime(Kaguya Princess)/ The tale of the bamboo cutter. (It is the story of a girl who was found in a stalk of a glowing bamboo). Our installation was looking at the spirit of the Princess inside the bamboo, as well as the Shinto belief that gods and spirits coexist in everything. We exhibited our work in an the old historic house Matsuzaka- tei.
