This work is consisted of three videos with thinking about the sea from Japan which looks spreading further than able to see, although in actual, which is a limited by the territorial water.

ビニールプールを海に見立てて小さなモーターをつけたボートを浮かべる実験と、プールに溺れた人型の者との会話、水槽に入れた水の塩分濃度を濃くして中に入れた仏像を浮かせる実験の3つのビデオからなる作品。いずれも境界をテーマに、日本にとってはとくに太平洋など限りなく遠くまで広がっているように見える海に境界が存在し、また自力で行くことのできる範囲も限られていることについて考察した。
