The aim of this installation is to communicate with spirits of sorts that dwell in forest themed images.
Invisible characters by the name of "KODAMA" are hidden in a forest projected onto a screen, from where they permanently collect voices of visitors. Once there is no more visitor left in the exhibition space, amorphous bubbles appear inside the projected images, and float around accompanied by cut-up recordings of the collected voices.
