Planetes “They live just as I live, they disappeared just as I disappeared.”
@ Fountain Square, Ueno Park

Before the creation of Ueno Park, this entire area was lined with temple buildings for the Kanei-ji Temple. After the damage incurred through natural disaster and war, the area became a park in 1876, the beginning of the Meiji Era. In this large-scale installation, Ohmaki uses the Monjuro gates as a way of transporting spectators back to what existed here in the past, and to invite them inside a site of past times, spaces, and memories.
