地方

The Place (地方) is a fiction depicting an imaginative space, representing an inner space of a person and is the setup for a future story.

 

That space itself is an endless void, where its center lies a hemisphere which contains The Place. The Place consists of three parts: a house, a yard, and a kid.

 

The house is two boulders stacking together like the houses in the style of Egypt in Ptolemy times. But the house also possesses an outer sitting passage with an overhead cover and a sliding door- both in the style of Japanese.

 

The yard is a giant Japanese Karesansui, surrounding the house entirely, disobeying the traditional rule of Japanese gardening. The yard separates into front and back parts, representing the past and future.

 

The kid is the resident of the place. He always has a quiet and sweet smile on his face while tilting his head upwards, looking into the sky. This kid represents the superego of the person, based on Sigmund Freud's structural model of the psyche.
