End of the Museum—12 Stations
Station 3: Former Hyogo Prefectural Institute of Public Health and Consumer Sciences
This massive installation transforms an abandoned building with one underground and seven aboveground floors, established by Hyogo Prefecture in 1968 as a sanitary research institute. While walking through laboratories and testing rooms for infectious diseases, food, and drinking water, visitors experience a sense of dread of the unseen. From the moment one walks through the building’s entrance, the visitors are confused
as to their location and shuttle back and forth between reality and imagination, traversing many worlds before they return to their daily lives.
