Kyushu-Okinawa

In the late 1960s, the American artist Robert Smithson coined the term “land art”. Works are not simply placed outdoors, but created as part of nature and the landscape. One of the proponents of this movement, James Turrell, even turned an entire volcano in Arizona into an art installation. which brings us to the southern island of Kyushu with its 30 active and inactive volcanoes.
