3000 pictures recording the setting sun shown in sequence on building facades overnight until the sunrise.

Megumi Matsubara’s set of photography shown as Assistant’s public installation at:

*Ta so kare / Ka wa tare means “Who is there?” in classical Japanese, each implying the time of sunsetting / sunrising twilight. It derives from the feeling when you are in the room, having a familiar silhouette at the door walking to you at sunset or leaving you at sunrise, but the light makes it difficult to recognise the face. The public installation implies the original meaning of the names of two countries Morocco where the photographs were taken, and Japan; one meaning the setting sun, the other the rising sun.
