Floating Island

An artificial island was built on the waterfront of Niigata city.

A flat river raft was floated on the water, and cabin was made by mud and straw, as well as a light house and a meeting place.  Then, a couple of “islanders” started to reside there.

Inspired by a conversation with the visitors to the island, vegetables were planted, dinner was served, songs were sung, the windmills started to spin, and a one-night festival was held.

As days passed by, the activities on this floating island had become richer, and appealed to visitors due to its uniqueness, making it a contrast to the everyday life of city people.
