Shingetu-sai ("New Moon Festival"), Myohon-ji Temple, Kamakura, is an event by non-profit organization Root Culture. It's a mixture of live concerts, workshops for all ages, markets and exhibitions by Kamakura area artists, performers, and shops. This old great Myohon-ji Temple, usually quiet and full of greens, turned to be one stimulating spot during the event. "duco land" - a space of media-arts, movies, pictures, and embroidery, all produced by duco., - appeared in Hikigayatsu Kindergarten, an entrance of Myohon-ji Temple, and it became quite a fun space too.

"festival" is an interactive art in which the visitor's moving shadow figures are pasted down into the Myohon-ji Temple Illustrated Map. (program by Shinji Sasada, sound by Saburo Ubukata) As the visitors increase, so do the shadows in the Illustrated Map. A total of four hundred people came in two days during the event, and all those actions and dances by visitors became the parts of the art. Dancers danced aggressively. Children tried to make some characters by their bodies. Visitors had fun in their own ways that we couldn't even imagine. Each day, the Myohonji Illustrated-Map were fulfilled with people, and it naturally became a colorful and fun art. In addition, two movies(sound by ducoband) were presented in a tent, and a big pop-embroidered cloth covered the room. All these elements formed "ducoland."

A 70-year-old storehouse in Onari-cho, Kamakura, was decided to be broken down, so we had this event "duco+kura exhibition" as the last event for the house.

We made the house as a pinhole camera, took black/white pictures of the garden, the main house, the neighber public bath, "Takino-yu," which also was to be broken down, all from the storehouse point of view. Also, 3-D movies for red-blue glasses were shown in the house. The soundtrack for this movies by ducoband was performed and recorded in the house too.
