ryo yamada: vertical landscape

an artistic display of white synthetic fiber netting created by japanese artist/architect ryo yamada is located in sapporo, japan. sited inside the upper level exterior courtyard of a historical building, the installation responds to open air conditions. fifty eight square pillars measuring 3.6 meters in height, covering an area of 600m2 are suspended from a horizontal plane of synthetic fabric.

the top of the delicate columns are open allowing light to filter through the translucent textile tube. a calm breeze sways the airy pillars producing a tranquil connection between earth and sky. this environmental art intends to evoke a range of emotions in visitors meandering within the space as it responds to varying weather conditions and sun angles.
