The theoretical framework combines two notions of time: the first one, which is defined by the conditions of Yamakiwa Art-Hotel, understood as a temporal and nomadic establishment, or a place where people come and go in journeys
on a short-term basis. And the second notion of time, which is outlined by the Echigo-Tsumari region, defined by its
permanent and sedentary condition, distinct by its nature, history and culture: a long-term temporary dependency.
The project seek to point out temporal and geographical juxtapositions; experiences of anachronism, moments of synchronicity.
It alludes to the changes and alterations of the messages that art contains, stores and transmit to us: how they travel and transform through time. The idea is to investigate the multidirectional experience of time and the transferals of energy
in the encounter with art.
