Mirage in the forest is the last installation by Akane Moriyama, made of approximately 6000 pieces of plastic films, that change their color by the direction of incoming light.
The structure is made of approximately 6000 pieces of 20cm x 20cm plastic films, which change their color by the direction of incoming light. Each film flaps in the wind and creates a large semi-transparent 3m x 3m x 24m volume.
The piece is hanged from old trees in sanctuary forest within old shrine in Ibaraki, Japan. The structure changes appearance depending on how wind blows and light comes. This installation was exhibited for 66 days as a part of Kenpoku Art 2016 festival.
