|In 2012, Christian Marclay was invited to create an artwork for «Mixed Bathing World», a contemporary art festival held in the town of Beppu, Japan, famous for its onsen (hot springs). It has eight major geothermal hot spots, sometimes referred to as the « Eight Hells of Beppu ».
On a jetty near the harbor Marclay installed a field of 100 flags banners, 50 represented water and 50 fire. At the bottom corner of each flag he attached a small bell.
