Room 402 | 502
A Room with a Column
Created by Haruna Kawai
A drama of a subtle reality
Not recommended for guests with small children.
There’s a pillar at the center of this room, that looks like it has come out of the painting of pillars on the wall. Guests are thrown into a surreal world in between the flat world inside the painting and the 3 dimensional world we live in.
Yet, the pillar represents the ever changing state of the real world. The shifting sunlight and the resulting shadows cast by this minimalist pillar changes the room’s expression moment to moment.
