Kiyomizu Temple Project, Kyoto, Japan, 1997

This 20 minute film, produced by Yasushi Kishimoto, documents a 7 day period at the Kiyomizu Temple in Kyoto, Japan, where Borofsky created several paintings using the word 'god' intersecting in four directions. As part of this 7 day performance, a pulsating red ruby - symbolizing the artist's heart - was placed in the garden and Borofsky's Four Gods soundtrack was played continuously in the background. The project was curated by Naomi Togashi of Fia, Inc..
