This exhibition, portrayed as a Sensorial Temple, presents refined natural materials that levitate between the ceiling and the floor. Timeless and poetic, the sensorial experience invites each person to live in the moment.
You are invited to try on and interact with the levitating body sculptures. Guided by Sound artist Masahiko Takeda and Kazuomi Eshima, the sound of singing bowls fully envelop the space as well.
