Land artist James Tapscott was commissioned by the Japan Alps Art Festival to create a site-specific art piece, which he named “ARC ZERO – NIMBUS”. Arc ZERO stands at the entrance to the Buddhist Temple Hotokizaki Kanon-ji. A ring of mist encircles the old bridge, which one must cross through to enter the site. A portal on the threshold of worlds, it represents the cycle of water, and all things in nature. By day the mist creates crepuscular rays and a rainbow effect around the view, while by night the mist is lit from within the structure, blazing a warm glow.
