みらいのアイデア IDEA OF THE FUTURE 2018/10/19 Fri - 11/4 Sun

EVENT INDEX

Main Visual Designer’s Message

Main Visual Designer’s Message Masakiki Hanahara
Japan Graphic Designers Association NEW DESIGNER AWARD(2018)

Nobody knows what the future will bring. So, we adopted a "coin toss" as the design motif this time, with the idea that it is something that people do hoping for a positive future. The future is surely something that engenders a mixture of hopes and anxieties, but we wanted people to actually see, touch, and feel future ideas in the venue, by tossing a head or a tail.

An installation will appear in the Midtown Garden in which the wind and sunlight are made visible. The mirror mesh that undulates in the breeze allows the wind itself to be seen. The changes in the reflected light give the aspect of a living creature, just enjoying the process of breathing, and creating a light and comfortable space to exist. This is your chance to feel the future not from new technology or materials, but from ways of thinking and the way things are used.
