Today’s featured artist is Kohei Nawa. He is a Japanese artist who creates the most interesting installation pieces. I came across his installation titled Foam online one day and am so intrigued! I have never really made an installation piece but I have always love the idea of completely transforming a space, and totally immersing people into your art. For this installation in Japan, Kohei created LOTS of bubbles that grew and changed form inside of a black room. The bubbles came up from the floor and were made out of glycerine, detergent and water. He experimented with different ratios, trying to create a “sturdier” foam that would keep it’s shape longer.
I love the atmosphere that has been created…and the awesome lighting really makes it look very spacey. Too cool! Check out Kohei’s website to see more of his work! Have a good Monday!
