japanese artist onishi yasuaki is best known for his use of humble, often transparent materials in the visualization of ethereal and immersive installations. for the window of shizuoka convention & arts center ‘granship’ in japan, he has created ‘vertical volume’, an amassed arrangement of hovering white objects which buoyantly float up-and-down. the air bag-like pouches are made from thin sheets of plastic, while a simple fan sits beneath, allowing them to easily sway around the room. bouncing from floor to ceiling, and spinning in space each floating tube beckons viewers to interact with it — walking through and touching the material — integrating a participatory and interactive element to the installation.
