Kanagawa Prefecture Odawara Enoura Observatory
Ocean horizon, sun, and stones
Here is where the work of modern artist Hiroshi Sugimoto continues to be compiled. The “weather station” is a jest of Sugimoto’s; he has clearly named the dominant feature of this facility, where celestial events such as the summer and winter solstices, is fused with the architecture. Certainly, if you visit before dawn, you will understand how readily the entire facility responds to light. The place is a test site, both grand and minute, for the beauty of light, rocks, architecture, the ocean horizon, the movement of celestial bodies, and time, working together.
