Outdoor sculpture museums usually don’t allow walking and climbing on art works, but Site of Reversible Destiny is an exception. Conceived by the late New York based artists, Shusaku Arakawa and Madeline Gins, it features caves, walls, hidden enclosures and secret rooms. From the names that Arakawa and Gins bestowed on the numerous and carefully designed environments you can sense that they are conceptual artists: Exactitude Ridge, Critical Resemblance House, or Kinesthetic Pass to name a few. The couple could not foresee that their work, built in 1995, would still be one of the most popular art adventure spots in Japan, even 22 years later.
