It Rains Flowers in Kohei Asano’s Garden

Garden by Kohei Asano

Japanese artist Kohei Asano usually describes his works in three terms: communication, community, computer-interaction. He wants to bring people into contact with one another and temporarily experience a feeling of community through his projects. "Garden" is an interactive installation that requires visitors to throw scraps of paper into the air.  As flower projection illuminates the floor, the scrapes of paper are transformed into flowers raining down on the virtual flowerbed.  '

Garden' is currently on display at The Chiba Prefectural Museum of Art in Chiba, Japan, as part of the exhibit  'Magical Museum: Light Art Exhibition' . The exhibition runs from July 14 – September 2, 2012.
