The Well

 

According to the official statistics from the World Health Organization, each 84.6 seconds someone tries to kill him/herself. In the background, a record of the process about suicide rates in Japan during and after II World war plays, though the exact source of the tape is unknown. 

 

While the flat glass surface at first appears as calm water, it turns into a hole each time someone, somewhere, somehow attempts suicide.

This is an active sculpture with sound, constructed from bricks, mirrors and light. April 2006.
