  Work Details  
  Akio Suzuki and his wife Junko Wada built this meditation site Space in the Sun on top of a hill near their home in Aminotown, province Tango (Pref. Kyoto) in Japan. The axis of the space is along the 135th latitude and is made of 2 walls and the floor between them. The materials are sundried bricks. The installation was created after an invitation by Akio Suzuki to use this space: 8 coloured Polaroids where placed equidistantly along one of the walls. 8 loudspeakers hung opposite the photos. The polaroids seemed like little windows into space, the loudspeakers played short bits of daily life sounds interrupted by pauses of silence.
