Room 206 | 406
The World After Five Minutes
Created by Youta Matsuoka (JONJON GREEN)
The Adjacent Extraordinary
Not recommended for guests with small children.
At first glance, this room appears to be a comforting space, designed with simplicity and unified grayscale color scheme.
However, after viewing the world reflected in the large frame, one can’t help but to question the nature of “this place”.
The work poignantly demonstrates the possibility that everyday life, which is built on assumptions and common sense, can change at any time in a flash.
A variety of original furniture pieces were created for this room, with an emphasis on making it a comfortable living room.
On the other hand, the reflection in the huge photographic work exhibited on the adjacent wall is a mirror world; where paint has been sprayed to cover the floor, walls, ceiling, and furniture. Witnessing an aftermath of some extraordinary happening.
In witnessing these two worlds in juxtaposition, we hope that it encourages you to imagine the extraordinary that awaits just beyond your daily routine, and feel inspired to transform this world through creative will.
