Summer Lights Brightening the Night Sky

Art director Yuto Tamura lights up the summer night sky with lanterns based on the concept of “Japanese ways of staying cool x art.”
Using “glitch art,” which captures a brief moment by chance, he evokes summer traditions through his designs. Graphical lanterns decorate this extraordinary space.
*Glitch art: a method of intentionally causing and recording bugs or “glitches” that occur during computer image processing.
