<Comment from Hajime Kinoko about his thoughts on the work>

Connecting people. I want to create such a space. Some time ago, I made a rope play equipment that resembled a trampoline that children could jump on.
I usually use ropes as art, but this was my first experience using ropes for entertainment. It quickly became popular and was crowded with children.
At that moment, I realized how good it feels to smile. Children get along easily and become friends. My rope art has an image of “tying'' rather than “tying.'' The red rope used this time is the “color of connection,'' reminiscent of blood or the red thread of fate, and the countless ropes crisscrossing each other signify “communion of people.'' I hope that this installation will become a knot where people meet, connect, and expand.
