"Methamorphosis Garden" is an installation on the theme of a world where life and substances or ambiguous things at the border coexist. As a development of the installation of Biota (Fora) in the Seto Inland Sea and Inujima, a new story from chaos was expressed. "Ether" and "Trans-Deer" as symbols of life standing up there with irregular islands and drops. Sculptures covered with grains of alumina and microbeads float in the atrium space. There, AR performances co-produced by choreographer Damian Jare develop, and the constantly changing world overlaps with real objects and AR images.

Because it is a familiar ingredient, it is rare to recognize that "Tamako" is originally an "egg" that is one stage of the birth of chicken life, but in the spring we are separated from the external environment. The birth of a life that is brought up in a fragile shell, breaks the shell, and inhales the earth's air may overlap the image of spring that endurs the winter. In addition, the newness that exceeds the existing one that is born when change is forced is called "breaking the shell". The breath of a new life released from a narrow shell will dance lightly in the air, receive the first blowing wind, spread gently, and sprout various other lives. The appearance of lathering egg whites and changing to fluffy meringue, expanding the association with the dressed-up lion and poodle hair, springing up with the arrival of spring, the feeling of being invited out of the door, and the excitement of meeting something new Expressed the joy. Every day, I want to grow eggs with the joy of my heart as I eat eggs.

PUBLIC ART GINZA SIX proposes a rich life where you can get close to art. Through collaboration with artists and creators, we will develop art programs that stimulate creative energy and sensitivity full of surprising elements.

A sculpture that combines the shape of a morning glory, bellflowers, chrysanthemums, and butterflies with the Edo Komon pattern. At first glance, Edo Komon is one of the small patterns with fine and regular patterns so that it looks like a base. This is the result of craftsmen competing on how to dig and dye fine patterns against the `` luxurious prohibition ordinance '' issued in the Edo period, which prohibits flashy kimono, and refined the design. It is a symbol of aesthetic sense of the times. ※Writer's message "I will create an immortal flower to connect the time, memory, culture, and people's thoughts deposited here in the future."

Under the theme of "Rakuen and Boundary", the entire space is regarded as a canvas, and it is composed and drawn using a mirror, and the painting space and reality intersect. Those who stand in front of the picture are reflected in the picture, and the viewer is the protagonist of the painting. By drawing the image of a fictitious paradise in everyone's head with a mirror, the people who come and go, the actual scenery and the world of imagination are mixed, 2D and 3D, what is and is not, past and present, Ideals and reality reverse and create a new space and vision. These symbolize the future being formed by people's imagination.

The newly drawn paintings for GINZA SIX have a dynamism on the swaying color, and the contrast expands the deep and vast space. The open and infinite space is our unconscious, and the shape drawn like dancing feels like a part (consciousness) of what we can see. A vivid color painting in a space a little away from the commercial space. People passing in front of them are invited to a pictorial space in Domoto, which is hollowed out by a double structure of unconsciousness and consciousness.

    Movie

A video work depicting a waterfall that changes with the sunset. "We make rocks three-dimensionally in a virtual three-dimensional space and let the rocks fall water. Water is expressed in a series of countless water particles and calculates the interaction between particles. The waterfall is built as a physical water exercise simulation. Then, a line is drawn on the space by raising 0.1% of water particles randomly selected from the whole water particles. I'm drawing a waterfall with a set of lines. In other words, there are 1000 times the amount of water particles behind the countless lines, and the curves of the lines are determined by the interaction of the whole. "

    Movie

Patrick Blanc's original vertical flat art work that uses no soil, interwoven with various plants including endemic species that inhabit Japan. As the work name suggests, it represents the deep valley bottom covered with shadows from the top of the cliff illuminated by the sun's light. Plants also inhabit all weather slopes because each variety perfectly adapts to its unique light energy. The diversity of plant varieties reflects the delicate botanical "beauty", "creativity" and "strategy".
