Hot Bed I : used clothing, red dye, green house, plants, water, earth, air, H230xW175xD350cm, 1998, Utsunomiya Museum of Art / JAPAN

I planted the several kinds of plant in the used clothing, which seemed to be strata in the green house. This title bears both the literal, positive meaning of a warm, enclosed seedbedthat aids plant growth and the negative meaning of a place where the ugly aspects of society drift, breeding violence and crime-"a hotbed of vice".
