PASSING ON PROJECT

2012 Milan salone “Touch to turn light into delight”

"Passing On Project" is a creator unit formed and lead by Makoto Tanijiri, who is currently drawing much attention in Japan.

Passing On Project will exhibit an installation at Milano Salone in April 2012 with the theme of "Touch to turn light into delight".

Moved by the adversity that the Japanese people experienced in 2011, this project pondered the existence of light, personal communication, and the joy of life: the meaning of light to people will be embodied with LED.

This installation will be developed by visitors to the exhibit.
They will choose one piece among the many acrylic parts and place it in a basin that is arranged in a dim venue. The acrylic part will instantly catch the LED light that passes through the water and begin to emit light.

The installation will constantly evolve. The moment parts placed by visitors start to glow, light and people communicate and individual joy turned into delight for all. This hands-on installation is indeed a work that grows.

Without light, acrylic is simply a transparent presence.
Visitors choose acrylic parts at their whim.
They then enter the venue and place the parts.

By placing acrylic in water, they will experience the moment that beautiful light is born and sense the astonishment and joy of illuminating light.

And thus the installation will constantly evolve with the participation of visitors.

About “Passing On Project”

An installation to ponder “light” and “people.”
A creator team headed by architect Makoto Tanijiri started this project to communicate messages.
Japan experienced a devastating earthquake in 2011, and we were spurred to ponder the existence of light, personal communication, and the meaning of joy. The significance of light for people was embodied with LED.
This interactive work is created hands-on and completed by those who visit the exhibition.
