Neil Dawson Installation, Osaka, Japan

Art & Exhibitions

This art installation was created to celebrate the establishment of the New Zealand consulate, Twin Tower Building in Osaka.

The artwork designed by Neil Dawson, consists of wire netting to resemble clouds, and is suspended between two tall buildings. It’s construction means that it is virtually invisible in the daytime, because a wire netting disappears into the background of sky and cloud.

But at nighttime, the artwork, which measures 5 x 8 metres appears unexpectedly suspended between the two tower blocks. It is lit by five narrow beam blue luminaires, carefully aimed at the work. The image provides the onlooker with a patch of daylight blue sky during the nighttime.
