Daikanyama Tsutaya Books (T-SITE) is celebrating their fifth anniversary with their largest Christmas light-up event ever. The world created by plant-hunter, Seijun Nishihata, is infused with balloon art by Daisy Balloon and the works of sculptor Kohei Nawa’s SANDWICH, to create a dreamlike scenery.
The snow-cell illustrates the relationship between plants and life. The white cells cling to the stems and foliage and also resemble snow fallen upon a forest. Walk through the forest and see the snow-cells come together, writhing about and growing like a huge living creature.

A new cultural movement is brought to life in this concept devised by Hideki Noda in which a diverse group of artists come together to create new forms of expression through cultural exchange. This is the leading project of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics & Paralympics culture program. It all started with Tokyo Caravan in RIO held during the Rio de Janeiro Olympics, which then took form on the other side of the world, namely Miyagi and Fukushima, as Tokyo Caravan in TOKYO, which then fused with the performances from the local workshops to become Tokyo Caravan Prologue 2015 and further evolved into Tokyo Caravan 2016, which was unveiled at Roppongi Art Night.

Organizer | Tokyo Metropolitan Government, Arts Council Tokyo (Tokyo Metropolitan Foundation for History and Culture)

The Tokyo Caravan public workshop was held for three days from Oct. 8-10 at the Komazawa Olympic Park special venue (nanshiki baseball ground). A total of 32 artists gathered in response to invitations from Hideki Noda (playwright, director and actor), Katsuhiko Hibino (contemporary artist) and Kohei Nawa (sculptor). Under the concept of culture is traffic, six workshops were held which explored the possibilities of Tokyo Caravan, which would officially kick off in summer 2016.
Daisy Balloon was in the fourth program, Vehicles Crossing Vehicles, in which vehicles pass each other to represent culture in the making. Vehicles would come and go to the music and video, and amongst the vehicles were balloon cars created by Daisy Balloon, appearing from stage right and left. Then, at the junction of the two cars crossing, out came people wearing balloon dresses. Like the transformation and adaptation that follows birth from a cocoon, culture is created through a repetition of crossings. This concept was key to the production.

Exuviation | In our eyes, there are no two moments that are identical. We are forced to grow without being able to reflect back in satisfaction. However, there is a beauty in that very moment. When our soul can no longer be contained within our body, it goes on a quest in search of a new vessel. The empty shell left behind is proof that we lived. We struggle in this brief moment we call life, but there is something to be treasured in that.
