Kyoto Garden Wormhole

Optivion - Kyoto Garden Wormhole

While in Kyoto I made a piece or artwork titled: The Lady and the Wormhole.
The gardens in the city set a mood of serenity and quiet embrace. I was working on a short story about a woman who could travel through space using her garden as the vehicle. I had a dream about her wearing a blue kimono using the small magical landscape to travel through time. In Japan the landscape is part of the history of the town or the prefecture. The Shinto religion is ancient in the country and it holds trees, springs and mountains to be places of spiritual power. It would seem any of the gardens I visited would have the possibility for intergalactic transformation, well at least in my imagination.

~Through the trees I saw two mysterious koropokkuru
having fun by the great mount Fuji.
森の向こうに富士山が見えた。そこには、不思議なコロボックル達が楽しそうに遊んでいた。
