Spiral Sun is an art work of site-specific AR-graffiti. I draw an AR-graffiti on Yasukuni Shrine and people can see by using mobile phone or tablet at the Yasukuni Shrine.  I handed postcards out to audiences in the gallery. The postcard indicates how people can access the art work set up in the Yasukuni Shrine.
Yasukuni Shrine is a Shinto shrine located in Tokyo, Japan. It was founded by Emperor Meiji and commemorates those who died in service of Japan from the First Indochina War of 1946-1954. Shinto is Japan’s first religion, and it was closely connected to the history of construction of Empire of Japan at the Meiji period.
