The island groups of the Seto Inland Sea (Kagawa Prefecture) are increasingly marked by depopulation. For this exhibition several vacant buildings were selected as installation sites. The roof of an abandoned kindergarden on the small island of Megijima was wrapped in five giant inflatable tubes. From inside the building the tubes emerged through a row of windows just below the eaves, folded back over the roof, and disappeared inside again through the windows at the back.
