5 ringstones

date: 2000
place: Fukuoka-Hakata, Japan
material: sandstone

Commissioned through Gallery Le Monde, Fukuoka city, Japan.

The 5 ringstones were machineparts for paper-

industry from 1949 -89.

When moving the grounds for settlement foundation they reappeared again. The historical background inspired me for a new arrangement of the 5 ringstones in the green entrance area of the apartementbuildings.

With the historcal awareness it should pass on reflections for the future within the context of an art

installation. Each of the 5 elements stands for itself though related to each other, allowing children to climb through, touch the inside, discover themseves and their history individually in a joyful way.
