Humble Ending, 2009: Over the years I have realized a number of works that involve the awareness of the position of ones body at the time of reading the text.

As you encounter this pillow size stone on the path in the bamboo grove you see that something is engraved on the top as it glints in the sunlight. Bending over to read the words SAYONARA your body assumes the bowing position and you become a fundamental part of the work.
