This artwork is 2nd piece of the collaboration project with Kumiko Noguchi, Norimichi Hirakawa and Koichiro Mori. The project was planed as a series of the measuring of natural phenomena as the result of the computation by the universe itself. This installation is simulated the position of earth, moon and solar and changed the tide level of artificial seawater by realtime tide datas of Tokyo Bay. This water flows to the black box, and tiny iron cubes lined on a paper within the black box are continuously oxidising. The other three displays present relationships between gravities of earth, moon and level of seawater. These changes are impossible to see directly. We can see them only as the scanned images by the built-in scanner in the black box. The all of processes can be described as a digital image processing which is executed by natural phenomenon.
