Participate in the #JoiTorii Project!

Only found at Shinto shrines, a Torii Gate demarcates the overlap between our world and the world of spirits (kami). These places of overlap are where people and kami can most easily interact.

Some Torii gates, such as the Itsukushima Shrine are quite large. The Joi Konpurekkusu Pocket Torii is, well pocket sized. It's neat to have on a desk or maybe a fishtank or as a travel companion to photograph at places you visit around the world. The Joi Konpurekkusu Pocket Torii is a whimsical pocket sized interpretation of Torii that pays homage to traditional forms. The top beam, the kasagi, is reinforced underneath by a second horizontal lintel called the shimaki. Finally the intersecting beam, the nuki, connects the two main pillars, or hashira, each of which curve upward.

In fact, I made Joi Konpurekkusu Pocket Torii as part of the #JoiTorii Project.

The #JoiTorii Project is an attempt to bring the world together through technology and photography. It strives to bring a little bit of the mysterious to the everyday; a bit of fun and whimsy to the staid and normal.

Once you have your printed torii bring it with you and take a photo of it! Tag the photo #joitorii on Instgram/Tumblr/Twitter/facebook so we can see where all the little gates end up around the world.

Eventually, I would like to collect the most interesting and inspiring photos into a book. I would like to write the unique story about how and where the Torii was photographed and the person who took the photo.
