The “hells” (jigoku) of Beppu are nine spectacular hot springs for viewing rather than bathing. Seven of the hells are located in the Kannawa district and two in the more remote Shibaseki district. The Chinoike Jigoku or ‘blood pond hell’ features a pond of hot, red water. It is the most photogenic of the nine hells.

Re-medium by Tomasz Dobiszewski, 2002-2005
Tomasz Dobiszewski in his work “Re-medium” creates a camera out of a pill pack. The space in which the image appears is where the pill lay just a moment ago. The image might be a vision after the pill has been taken or this vision might be the consequence of taking the image. The author, for whom pinhole photography has always been an uncovering medium, is trying to convince us by putting instructions next to the photographs of how to use them in the shape of an informative brochure added to the medicine, that during “visual pauperisation” the images will still appear, even if only as placebo.
