    Nobuho Nagasawa is a New York based transdisciplinary artist whose site-specific and community responsive works explore the politics, ecology, and psychological dimensions of space and people.


    Tsukuyomi is an ancient Japanese word for Moon-Night Reading, and is used as the title for this photograph of Nagasawa's permanent public art work in Japan. Commissioned by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, the 42,000 sq. ft. plaza is composed of phosphorescent paving in the image of the 28 phases of the moon, with mist fountains which slowly cloud over the moons. The work reinterprets the traditional connection in Japan between the moon and water, both temporal and ritualistic elements.
