|Japanese modern art "Wheel tracks"|
At the end of a Japanese festival, you can see the remaining wheel tracks of the ceremonial floats on the ground. This inspired this piece where you can see the wheel tracks in the ground that represent the fun and excitement of the festival long after it has ended and the town has fallen silent. Like a typhoon, it is the calm after the storm.
Wheel tracks on the road after a festival in Japan
In Japan, there are many festivals. Each festival has it's own main theme and events. In the case of the Autumn festival in Kakegawa in Shizuoka prefecture, street stalls are one of the main attractions. Local people visit the stalls from mid-day into the night. Also, people pray for a good harvest during the festival, a custom that has continued since the Edo period.
