We would like to present to you a photography essay centring on [Mind Trail], divided into three chapters consisting of three different locations in Nara Prefecture 奈良県 respectively: Yoshino 吉野町, Tenkawa 天川村 and Soni 曽爾村.
Taglined ‘Museum in your mind’, [Mind Trail] was produced by Seiichi Sato 齋藤 精一, the representative of art and design company Rhizomatiks, and curated by Hayashi Akio 林 曉甫 of InVisible. An outdoor art festival that took place in the autumn time of 2020, utilising the vast, beautiful and brilliant nature of Nara. In the first part of this chapter you would find a visual documentation of the journey undertook, before we continued and dived deep into the forest and hiked the mountains of Tenkawa, where we discovered some unexpected sceneries that are out of this world, which would be presented in the second part.
