The artist’s interpretation of a sustainable Dōgo as it may be one thousand years from now was based on unique, creative ideas derived from interviews with local citizens, and told through a series of shadow pictures throughout the city (“Giant Shadow Pictures”). Small-scale shadow pictures were also shown at several locations around Dōgo, linking the history of the town with its future (“Night Stories”).
