Inspired by a cave visited at the foot of Mount Fuji, Shinji Ohmaki constructed an installation designed to render visible the air we cannot see and the sounds we cannot hear. Liminal Air is composed of 123,000 nylon strings suspended in varying lengths in such a way that they collectively create a kind of cloud-like, inverted topography. Viewable from both the interior and exterior, Liminal Air is intended to convey to visitors the feeling of plunging into a wave of light.
