"Second Nature" Exhibition

poster for "Second Nature" Exhibition

This event has ended.

This exhibition offers an opportunity to once again ponder the future of design as well as the mysterious powers of nature which transcend the limits of the human imagination. Tokujin Yoshioka, director of the exhibition, has attempted to incorporate in his own design work the many laws that exist in nature, while at the same time exploring the possibilities of technology. His works do not only remind people of the natural world on a visual level, or imitate the more apparent manifestations of the laws of nature. Rather, by using technology as well as his own ideas as a kind of sustenance, he creates new forms of nature, in a process that results in what might best be described as a “second nature”. Rooted in this mindset, this exhibition presents the experimental works of eight groups of creators, including Tokujin Yoshioka himself. The exhibition also presents a cloud-like installation that envelops the exhibition space.

I LOVE THESE!

セカンド・ネイチャーとは、
「後天的な習性」、「第二の本能」という意味(本来は)。

記憶から生み出される第2の自然、デザインの未来を考える。という、サブタイトルを本当に実感。
自然が作り出す、造形を満喫できる展示会でした。

もっと早く見に行って人に薦められたらよかった。
おそらく今年のベスト3に入る(予定)のではないだろうか。
