TAKT PROJECT's visible motion show for aisin seiki evokes the art of car mobility

 

 

milan design week 2017: developed for japanese manufacturing company aisin seiki, ‘visible motion’ is an installation by tokyo-based TAKT PROJECT which reveals cutting-edge automotive technologies that are normally found inside a car. by showing the unique movements created by such technologies, without the presence of a vehicle, the team is subtly referring to the ‘creation of human-mobility relationship’. 

 

‘the number of parts needed to make a car is said to be about 300,000. when all of those parts work together, the car produces mobility….we believe that leading-edge technology not only makes the parts work beautifully together, but it also creates a relationship of ‘beautiful mobility’ between the driver and car,’ as said by the aisin seiki group.

exhibited at the milan triennale museum, TAKT PROJECT‘s installation for aisin seiki is composed of a large pool containing a magnetic fluid – where a tire’s contact surface appears in 3D. it forms sweeping arches and passes through effortlessly, only showing tread marks of the movements, expressing not the actual external appearance of the car but rather its mobility and ambience. the confrontation between the viewer and the large water basin lends way to creating a sense of relationship between person and mobility and resulting in a significant experiential impact.
