"As Glass Breaks, So People Die. Nothing is Eternal, so Live the Moment."

 

This is the theme of glass artist Yukito Nishinaka's latest installation project, a collaboration between Nishinaka and Nihon Taisanbin Glass Bottle Mfg. Co. Ltd., a leading company in recyclable glass. All the glass material used are recycled glass (70% reused) forming a meditative space with glass pillars in various sizes. A place to free your senses and perspective and invite you to a world of imagination.

 

The fusion of art and cutting-edge technology has created a space where it welcomes people to contemplate about a society based on recycling natural resources. This exhibition is not just about recycling glass bottles, but is also a realization of upcycling, where the artworks themselves speak out on environmental issues.

 

The installation will be on display in the entrance hall of Nihombashi Takashimaya in Tokyo Japan until June 20th.
