artificial mountains

Kimihiko Ohada: Aluminum Landscape. Site specific installation for the courtyard of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo. 7/5/2008 - 9/23/2008. 902 square meters; 6.5 meters high.

From the artist's statement:
I will employ the natural and artificial in producing new scenery. My creation will reflect rain, wind, and other weather phenomena, as well as the movement of the sun, color of the sky, and other quiet changes in the environment. By reflecting the surfaces and shapes of the landscape, the artwork amplifies and transforms nature and makes it visual.
