Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale, Part VII/大地の芸術祭、パート7

On September 4, I went to see the Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale for the third time.  I went to the "Hachi & Seizo Tashima - Picture Books and Tree Nuts Art Museum" first.
"What is this artwork," I wondered.
This is an abolished school turned museum.
I had lunch at Hachi Cafe.
Hachi Cafeで昼食を食べました。
Cucumbers, micro tomatoes, and edible hozuki (Physalis alkekengi) were offered for free.
I ordered "Taiyo no Arroz" (lit. Rice of the Sun) (1,000 yen) and a cup of iced coffee (300 yen).
"Taiyo no Arroz" is Spanish-style takikomi gohan.
So, what was the workwork in front of the entrance?  This YouTube video will answer this question (at 2:25 and after).

To be continued.
