Meeting at Kobe Biennale
Designed by architects Yo Shimada of Japan-based studio Tato Architects and Ichiro Hashimoto of New Zealand practice S3 Associates, Meeting was showcased at the Kobe Biennale exhibition in Japan. The installation immerses visitors in a reflective, colourful environment, constructed from hanging optically treated film and suspended mirrors.
Reflecting visitors amongst a sea of changing colours, the film curtain sways with the movements of visitors, continually reflecting different images. “The visitor will continue to follow his or her own reflection, together with swaying figures, along the perimeter,” says Shimada, changing how visitors see themselves and others.
This year’s Kobe Biennale ran from October 1 until November 23.
