liminal

tokyo vertical cemetery

Liminal is  a vertical cemetery in Shinjuku , Tokyo; a sanctuary for ashes and memories. Its empty floors constantly get installed with masses of urn cubes forming gigantic led screens. Places photos, videos, songs, moments selected by the deceased are displayed on them. Cemetery becomes a live event of the dead, a space to encounter memories echoing between the walls, a place to meet identities, a combination of incessantly shifting environment and revival of past events. Witnessed moments define the actual emotive space for the observer. Cemetery becomes story created within time, a process rather than a frozen stage; a place to let memories spread.
