Torii Gate

A ‘Torii’ gate is a traditional Japanese gate found at the entrances of ‘shinto shrines’, marking the transition from mundane to sacred. Passing through a ‘Torii’ gate is considered a ritual act, signifying a spiritual journey or a transition into a different realm. This work is based not only around the structures inherent themes but is inspired by photos of ‘Torii' gates still standing during disasters such as the atomic bomb, earthquakes and tsunamis. Reacting to the secular and sacred spatial environments the work discusses ideas of creator and created, heaven and hell, sacred and the mundane.
