if you are around clasca store in tokyo (one of designboom’s favorite shops in town), stop by and check
out the exhibit. there are a
lot of great pieces in the shop like the frame mobiles by the same
artist.
by applying transparent strings to the frames they look as if they are floating and another nice spatial
effect is made by their shadows.
