Giant Squid in Takamatsu

 

Not, this is not the giant squid that was recently shot by a camera crew in the middle of the ocean, but the one from Project for Sea-Light in Takamatsu:

 

 

During the Setouchi International Art Festival 2010, it probably was my favorite piece from the project, and when I moved to Takamatsu one year ago, it was a pleasant surprise to see it still hanging from the roof the shōtengai (although it had moved, the last time I saw it it had been moved from Minamishinmachi to Tamachi). I’m not completely positive it’s still there (and this post made me realize that I haven’t been to Tamachi in months), but this picture is a good opportunity to remind you that the Project for Sea-Light in Takamatsu should be started again for the Setouchi Triennale 2013.
