This study will elaborate on the physical structure elements of “GIMON”, a video installation work exhibited at the Kobe Biennale 2015 Japanese Guest Artist Exhibition by the request of the Organizing Committee for KOBE Biennale. It was November 2014 that a request to create a “video installation work at Higashi yuenchi Park, adjacent to the Kobe City Hall (6 chome, Kano-cho, Chuo-ku, Kobe City), was received. To continuously play a video in a public space such as a park for as long as 40 days initially seemed tremendously difficult if not impossible. This is because a robust structure, securing the safety of an undetermined number of viewers, needed to be created within a limited budget. Needless to say, the structure itself is part of the artwork and the overall design was important. It also needed to be of substantial size to be presentable outdoors. Further, a mechanism to showcase video with fresh and vivid impact had to be created. This study will report on the process of how these difficulties were overcome and how the installation work came to life.
