YUMI KORI ART WORKS

Green Air Plane

Shibaura House, Tokyo, 2012
Studio X Tokyo, Columbia University
Workshop, Installation, Public Action

I installed green carpet on both side of the glass to suggest the relationship in between interior and street, I organized a workshop to make paper airplane with the architecture students. Then, We had a performance to through the airplane to the glass window. The pedestrians on the side walk looked inside, the invisible wall disappeared as if the glass melt, and communication was born. In modern city, there are many glass façade buildings. People believe that glass is transparent and activate the communication between inside and outside, public and private. But, in reality, inhabitants do not look out the society nor pedestrians do not look into the interior, I wanted to question the transparency of the glass by this participatory art work.
