The Noto peninsula extends from the center of Honshu, the main island of Japan. Focusing on Suzu’s distinct location at the tip of the peninsula, the artists set up a Honshu Yajirobe (a balancing toy) with Suzu as its fulcrum. Surrounding it are 425 inhabited Japanese islands suspended from the ceiling and swaying. With the Eurasian Continent depicted on the wall in the background, the characteristics of the surrounding sea area, the Japanese archipelago, and the positional relationship between the continent and the Noto Peninsula become clear.
