Pray for 3.11 victims.


 When I visited Ishinomaki 5months after the 3.11 disaster, faced a wall of abandoned cars piled up on the shoreline.

It looked like a breakwater which built by the victims huddled together, and they seemed to protect people who survive.

On the other hand, it is said that the departed souls return to the sea, and there is a local custom to float down a tray boat made of straw into the sea for them.

This work expresses the mutual praying through the sea between the livings and the deads.
