This video features third incarnation AUJIK artifacts at an excursion at the Ishiyama dera in Japan. The artifacts are superfluous products generated in the crossbreed of human and technical evolution. They are in a state between resignation and euphoria, incapable of expressing themselves.
The Ishiyama dera is a sacred Buddhist area and is most famous because of the novelist Murasaki Shikibu who wrote "The Tale of Genji"(the worlds first novel) there. Also Ukiyo-E artist Ando Hiroshige portrayed Ishiyama dera in his "The Famous Views of 60-Odd Provinces".
