A superb co-production between Shinoyama and the ikebana artist Teshigahara (1927-2001), who takes the viewer on a guided tour of his large bamboo installation held at the famous ikebana school in September 1987. "This novel photographic collection consists of a continuous series of 30 photographs encompassing Hiroshi Teshigahara's one-man exhibition held at the Sogetsu Kaikan." The images were cut together using the Shinorama method and thus form one continuous panorama. They were taken during the course of one day, starting at sunrise and finishing in the evening. Includes an accompanying booklet containing essays by Noguchi Isamu, Isozaki Arata, and Shinoyama Kisshin. Only two copies in OCLC.
