Reminiscent Wind by Ikuya Sagara

Thatched roofing has been used in architecture for millennia and this work reappropriates the technique for artistic expression. Created by a master thatcher, the work poetically evokes the memory of wind moving across a rice field and blowing away the morning mist. Specially selected rice straw has been thatched onto a wooden board, interspersed with delicate strands of Japanese pampas grass. It is then cut and finished at an angle using large thatching shears, with the slanted perspective adding to its gentle sense of movement.
