Window on the Waterfront


Artist: Hitoshi Tanaka from Miyazaki, Japan
Community: Saint John (Waterfront), New Brunswick

Artist Statement
Saint John’s Harbour Passage is a place where many citizens promenade and relax.

My sculpture will give a rest to the people who visit here.

People will touch the whole body of the sculpture; children will climb it; couples will sit with and enjoy the sculpture. They will all look at the seaside.

The sea wind runs through the opened window and conjures images of far away places.

From the other side of the window people can look at Uptown Saint John and see the beauty of the city as I saw it.

This sculpture will be the new window of the Saint John Waterfront looking both to the future and the present.
