The end of day and beginning of the world. 

 

March - April 2015 Chukotka Russia

 

Shingo Yoshida realized this project at the Russian Far East, 

namely the Siberian regions of Chukotka and Beringia. 

There the 180th Meridian runs vertically setting the basis for the International Date Line, which separates two consecutive calendar days.

 

Inspired by local raven folk tales, Shingo Yoshida took food with him as sacrificial offerings to nature and the ravens to thank them for their protections during the trip.

数々ある渡りガラスの民話にインスパイアを受け、自然やワタリガラスに感謝する事を学んだ。旅路の防護を願い、犠牲の提供物として食物を捧げた。
