—-Behind the scene—-Welding aluminum drain pipes to the base. I have only a few videos or shots I made during the fabrication of a fountain sculpture #fatalfertile for Venice Biennale —- since I had no room in my head to do anything else. I’m glad I made an effort to this one😊🙌 #Venicebiennale #palazzomora #sculpture #artist #instavenice #instaart #instamaking #architecture #weldingandgrinding #metalfabrication #japaneseartist #newyorkartist #asianart #comtemporaryart #contemporaryartists #artarchitecture #art #artgallery #welder #metalshop #artistsoninstagram #architecturebiennal2018 #fountain #金属彫刻 #制作風景 #溶接女子 #現代アート

My 3rd Fountain sculpture “Fatal, Fertile” is on view at Palazzo Mora, Venice Italy until November 25th in the exhibition “Time Space Existence”. It was hectic few months to complete this project to realize the shape, the mechanism and the structure. The pump has a timer, so the flow goes on and off to change the scenery of sculpture.
The color metal shape looks like a lotus flower standing on the dome where a pearl lays on the petal. Around the dome, there is a pattern of Zen garden symbolizing the existence of water and impermanence. I use black oil as a liquid here, with its shine and viscosity, the movement would be observed better and also it’s mesmerizing.
I combined all different kinds of metal: bronze, stainless, steel, aluminum. They are machined or cold-forged and welded. And the drawing on the aluminum base was done by CNC engraving. So many things I learned, struggled and got helped or inspired by others as always.
After all, I’m very grateful and happy with this project. I hope you will have a chance to see it sometimes!
