Kinkakuji is a famous tourist spot in Kyoto.
However, this photo lacks the elements that it should have.
The reflection of Kinkakuji
For many years the appearance and design of the entire garden has not been changed. The idea was the following: what kind of impression would people get if some specific elements of Kinkakuji were changed by, for instance, cropping out the reflection on the sea? Would they feel any abnormalities? How would they perceive the "new" Temple?
Hidden aspect of Kyoto
`Hidden aspect of Kyoto` was a project that investigated the perception of people about changes in nature and cities. In this case, I chose the Golden Temple as it is a famous spot, not only for tourists from overseas, but also for local people, who heard stories from their ancestors about this magical place.
