Wald aus Wald (Forest from Forest), 2010, de Takashi Kuribayashi
A forest was constructed from a traditional handmade Japanese paper, and I was invited to enter the installation with the forest floor above my head. In this paper floor, holes have been torn out through which we can observe the forest from an insect’s perspective. Together with the faint mist, I felt that I was somehow transported to a delightful secret place. It was truly a fun experience.
As a young designer, I thought this exhibition was a very fruitful one. I got to learn a lot more about art and the construction of a meaningful design. I learned how to take a second look at every work, and take it in differently from the first. Design is truly boundless, and hopefully I could apply this knowledge in my future projects.
Next stop for me? Probably the Singapore Art Museum for the Collectors Stage. (http://researchfacility.wordpress.com/)
