This is a paper bowl that envelopes air.
It is possible to create various shapes by pulling it in different directions.
The paper is thin and light, but when expanded it is rigid and strong enough to stand alone.
This commemorative airvase is created under supervision of Takehiko Inoue to mark the special exhibition ‘Takehiko Inoue Interprets Gaudi’s Universe’ beginning in July 2014.
Relish the transformation of objects from a plane into three dimensions.
