The tale of Hanadensha / tonshu tonshu

2002-2004 / Installation and video



My grandmother and I together made a flower rope as she repeatedly told one story, which became more and more dramatic and sophisticated.  At the end, we made a flower train, and played Densha gokko, Japanese traditional play to imitate a train, with people that she had wished to take the train together.
