Hai, Chiizu, Kobe!

KOBE Biennale Grand Prize

Hai, Chiizu, Kobe!

*The images of works are those at the time of application. These images may be different from the actual exhibits.

Photo taking in the 21st century is such a common sight as it is as easily accessible as the click of a cellphone button. My goal is to create and install a structure that will encourage people to come together and take photos with the beautiful views of the sea and city of Kobe as a backdrop. The structure has windows and doors that frame Kobe (Meriken park). People will be able to eagerly embrace this structure and take photos in these ‘frames’.
