“Transparent Flowers” installation piece displayed in the Sennin no Niwa garden (designed by Mirei Shigemori) at the entrance to Sennyū-ji Temple.
Flowers made transparent by steel lines and prisms bloom in profusion in mid-air, swaying in the wind to produce a space that has a vague sense of movement.
While retaining the spirit of modernism and abstract expression discovered by Mirei in this classical garden, a new rhythm of light is brought to the garden’s still ambience.
A light and dynamic installation using polyhedron prisms.
Organic volume is formed along the 3D curved surface of honeycomb as though crystallizing the prism structures,
appearing as cloud-like objects of light.
Changes in sunlight and indoor lighting produce varying degrees of radiance and contrast at different times together
with seemingly infinite prismatic light.
Shibuya Hikarie Christmas 2019
An installation based on this year’s Christmas theme at Shibuya Hikarie,“Illuminate Myself!”
Sitting in the “Light Chair” surrounded by decorative glittering prisms changes the lighting in this space.
The colors shift and change as both you and the prisms are covered in the vibrant hues of the sparkling lights.
SOL / LUNA
A lighting installation based on the sun and moon.
The concept behind the symbolic “SOL” object is that of light itself, combining power and subtlety, illuminating the entire space with the light it emits while also casting countless prismatic lights. The “LUNA” object, a suspended new moon orbiting the sun, appears to wax and wane with the effects of six elements. The ground is covered with grit and the surface of the moon catches prismatic light from the object.
“SOL”, which emits dynamic, powerful brilliance, and “LUNA”, which contains static brilliance, combine timeless modern beauty and spirituality thanks to the contrast between their existence and their appearance.
