KNOW MORE ABOUT THE DESIGNERS:
100 years to come in 100 colors Known for her large-scale installations, Emmanuelle Moureaux’s first public art sculpture has been unveiled in the new well-being distric in Tokyo, Japan.
The sculpture is titled ‘mirai’, meaning ‘the future’ in Japanese. As part of Moureaux’s ongoing ‘100 colors’ installation series, ‘mirai’ visualizes the next 100 years to come (2020 to 2119) in 100 different shades of colors.
Standing at 4 meters in height, composed of 592 layered big numbers, the structure of the sculpture provides a big enough gap in between the years to allow children to interact with the piece. Furthermore, when looking inside the body of the sculpture, passersby will notice that the colorful future is in fact supported structurally by the past, which is represented by white numbers.
‘mirai’ is on permanent display in GREEN SPRINGS at the tachikawa stage garden entrance plaza.
