By creating a strong magnetic field in the exhibition space and having that magnetic force produce sounds and power motors, this sculptural piece allows audiences to perceive phenomena that are not typically felt. After the Great East Japan Earthquake of 2011, Mohri reproduced her graduation project from her student days for an energy-themed exhibition.
The first floor of the exhibition space is used to generate energy through solar, wind, and human power, which is then used on the second floor. For this work, 40 watts of electric power were introduced into the space to produce a strong magnetic field within the installation. The resultant energy was used to power a single, small vibrating motor — a somewhat weak, paltry mechanism designed to harness the vast energy in the background.
