Osaka Art & Design 2023, an area-based event where you can encounter art and design as you stroll through the streets of Osaka, is coming. Centered around Umeda, home of Hankyu Umeda Main Store, and including areas such as Nakanoshima, Tenmabashi, Kyomachibori, Honmachi and Shinsaibashi, roughly 20 galleries and stores from each of these locations will be in participation. Interact with a multitude of creations through the 30+ exhibitions, and feel the unique resonance of Osaka's culture.
DAISY BALLOON will exhibit the balloon shell artwork, Roots: The Gathering of Life, at the Shukusai Plaza on the 9th floor of Hankyu Umeda Main Store and premiere the Hankyu Department Store x DAISY BALLOON collaborative work, Apple bear. The display will feature up to 10 of each of the four bear designs.

Balloon Shell, an installation that hangs from the 1st floor windows and the ceiling of the 9th floor Shukusai Plaza, is a construction of shells. The shells are made by wrapping and hardening white thread around a balloon and extracting it to leave just the outer sculpted shell. The balloon remnants extracted from the shell are placed back inside Apple bear, representing the cycle of nature and the micro universe which expands like the cosmic universe. This work has also extended to becoming the key visual for this area-based event, Osaka Art & Design. The visual is a graphic design based on macro photographs of our Apple bear work. Apple bear | Apple Bear is one of the creations of the Animal Font Project in which each letter of the alphabet is represented by an endangered species (A=Apple bear). Following the Great East Japan Earthquake of 2011, the Animal Font Project was then developed as an application to raise awareness of natural disasters related to global warming and climate change, becoming a symbolic work that opened new avenues for DAISY BALLOON. Apple bear, which features an apple motif symbolizing many things including birth, knowledge, love, and creativity, is a reminder for us to return to our origins = our portrait.

Turbulence|There is a light to be found in the volatile, uncertain, complex and obscure dimension of modern society. We express this idea by weaving together long balloons and warping its surface. The aim of this work is not to blame injustice and absurdity, but to quietly reflect on our inner conflicts and to instill the hope that we can adapt ourselves freely to the unpredictable turbulence of our world.

The balloon artist unit "DAISY BALLOON" is appointed for this year's Christmas illumination production. With the theme of "floating balloon tree of light", approximately 14,000 balloons, each made by hand, will be used to create a Christmas illumination that uses the entire atrium space that is the symbol of OMOTESANDO HILLS. In the center, a glowing tree with a height of about 9m, made up of small balloons, appears. Countless balloons are also scattered on the top, forming a large undulation that expresses how the energy of the joy of Christmas spreads. In the special performance of sound and light that is held every 20 minutes, the color of the tree in the center changes according to the music written especially for this event by composer and pianist Mamiko Hirai, creating a fantastical atrium space. wrapped in light.

We exhibited three installations on the ceiling of the Roppongi Academy Hills corridor (Roppongi Hills 49th floor) for FemtechFes 2022.
Inspired by a microscopic image of bodily hormones, the hovering balloons represent serotonin and adrenaline. The silver balloons are the human body and moving toward it are purple, blue and copper balloons, metaphors for serotonin and adrenaline. The actual balance and movement occuring within our bodies is visualized in this dynamic work.
The music, delivered through 24 hidden speakers in the venue, is based on a physics simulation algorithm created by sound artist KAITO SAKUMA, in which gravity causes musical notes to move and clash with one another to produce music. If neurotransmitters were musical notes, this would be the sound to express their balance and movement.

Daisy Balloon will also hold a pre-opening exhibition of "Wave" from September 7th (Wednesday) to September 16th (Friday) at Roppongi Hills Metro Hat.

Wave|An installation created with over 10,000 balloon sticks used at sporting events. By arranging the balloons into a wormhole formation, when the natural flow of air moves the balloons, they strike each other to make a clapping sound. We expressed the "joy of living in the same generation" which can be felt when people connect and move about with one another. This creation is also a symbol of the support we are lending to everyone currently living in the "now."

Joining | By linking together polyethylene material which has become a part of everyday lives, we can rethink its characteristics and background and discover new purposes for the future. We hope this will become an opportunity to think about what the future should be in terms of the relationship between people and the environment, people and people, and people and society.

The extraordinary atmosphere of Christmas is represented as a cosmic landscape, as a world unknown to us. The installations and objet d'art displayed in the venue are made to resemble the birth, growth and harmony of the universe. They are also metaphors for those moments your heart fills with surprise or the feeling of discovering a new brand that comes with the Christmas season.

We believe the Japanese word IRODORI not only refers to the balance of colors, but has a deeper meaning that symbolizes age old culture that has taken root and has survived from generations past.
In this installation, we imagined our diverse world of IRODORI and represented a powerful burst of life energy from the center outwards. In life, small particles of energy spread into the vast world which then intertwine with nature and the atmosphere, making way for connections to the next generation. This work is a visual representation of this magnificent process.

In this work, we wanted to create a story about the relationship between “past and future” and “people and forest” that is present in Asahikawa. The story has three parts: The culture and customs of Asahikawa, the coexistence of people and the forest, and the metaphor that represents the birth of Asahikawa Furniture. Snow, forest, and people, which are the symbols of Asahikawa intermingle to create a cohesive shining mass. We hope you can feel the light that Asahikawa Furniture shines into the world.
Harmony | The snowmelt seeping into the land is a representation of the harmony created through the nature and people of Asahikawa (Photo 1).
Hito to Mori | The symbols of Asahikawa—snow, forest, people—each shine in their own way and come together to form a magnificent light (Photo 2).

Forward | We wanted to express a powerful vector aimed toward the future, which was something we felt when we visited Thailand. We focused on the individual life force, which becomes the force that moves an enormous societal system. From a microscopic perspective, this abundant energy that flows all throughout society may seem like independent bodies moving aimlessly, but we believe they are life forms existing within the vast backdrop of Thai culture. We, daisy balloon, believe that people exist as people/individuals while at the same time representing society/the greater whole. Our work is a representation of this idea where humans take on life and go through initiations at each life stage: birth, growth, chance encounters, cooperation, and creation.
