Former Miura residence.
A place where numerous pieces of merchants used to gather.
Now, with no trace of those merchants, its serial rooms lie silently.
It is not walls but sliding paper doors that separate the space.
It is not cool concrete but moist straws of tatami mats that you would touch with the bottom of your feet.
While an occasional breeze would come through the courtyard.
How will I feel, what will I find, and what kind of work will I install in such a space?
Time to head southwest, toward Susaki, Kochi.
