「 Miniature Swimming Pool

  The idea of making a miniature pool came to me in the summer of 2011 after the Fukushima nuclear disaster.  Seeing on a TV screen a swimming pool children could not go and swim in, I thought I could make a pool safe and intact from any natural disaster or destruction by any humans.  While working on it, I began to realize it was forming itself into ‘Hakoniwa,’ a kind of miniature garden, touching my heart, my unconscious self, inquisitively in the process.
