For Another Harvest of the Sky (2021), mylar and wood, 18' x 38' x 7'

Temporary outdoor installation at Wassaic Project, Wassaic, NY, in collaboration with Sean Salstrom.
Sections of Shiroyone Senmaida rice terrace in Ishikawa, Japan, were transported onto the terraced roof of the Luther Barn in the valley of Wassaic, melding the surrounding landscape with the architecture. The terraced paddies, a common farming method found in valleys, signal the beginning of rice farming season by flooding with water in springtime, a transition marked by the sudden reflection of the sky amongst the landscape when the ground becomes fields of mirror. Recollecting their experience of living in Japan, Ishii and Salstrom attempt to share the feeling of anticipation and wonder as a metaphoric harvesting or gathering of the sky.
