consisting of 729 connected textile components, ‘blue brick’ by akane moriyama is dyed in three different blue gradients and hue variants. each nylon piece can be separated and sewn together again, which enables a continuous transformation within the spatial installation. developed as an ever-changing modular configuration, the system by moriyama influences how the interior facade interacts within the expanding and contracting unit of colorful panels. functionally speaking, the intervention has the potential to co-exist within the space as a transparent wall, massive curtain, or even as a horizontal carpet-shaped element.
