At Ueda Shoji Photography museum located at the base of Mt Daisen, the Water and Light Project Working with the Houki Town, Japan community, created a spectacular video/sound event

The event was in honor of Ueda Shoji, a long time Tottori resident, and one of Japan’s most celebrated photographers. Ueda san has influenced the way photographers the world over see the placement of humans in the environment. We used that sensibility in creating and sharing the experience of the event
With live music accompanying gigantic multiple video projections we brought the outside walls of the museum alive with images of blooming flowers, dreams and fields of beautiful memories. The musicians used the unique acoustic echo to create and evoke a recurring memory. “Hello, I am home”
