  • Art For Social Change Project Launches in Japan Using Waste to Create Art

    29.July.2021 | FASHION

    Innovation Design launched its new ‘Art For Social Change’ project at haishop in Shibuya Scramble Square on July 21 which sees artwork made from waste.

     

    According to Japan’s Ministry of the Environment, 42.74 million tonnes of garbage has been thrown out since 2019. That’s the equivalent of around 115 Tokyo Domes, or 918g of waste per person everyday. The waste cannot be exported, and so real action is required to reduce the amount of waste create on the island country of Japan, especially when thinking 20 years down the road.

     

    That’s where haishop comes in. Using caps from detergent, which are actually no longer sold, as well as plastic caps and other materials resulting from waste, it will create a new identity for waste together with consumers in the form of art. Art For Social Change aims to send a message to society to make real transformations in the world through the medium of art.

    It’s easy to imagine what happens when creating a product up to its completion, but considering what happens to it after it’s been used is a lot more difficult. Every year, the available capacity at final disposal sites decreases more and more. The important topic at hand is getting everyone in Japan to really treasure the products they buy, to conceive ideas on how to prolong longevity of the things that people purchase, and construct a new society centred on recycling and reusing. And this isn’t just a Japan problem – it’s a global one. That’s the message which Art For Social Change carries.

     

    The only conditions on participating with the project is that you agree with its goal and that you use materials on sale at haishop. Everyone is invited regardless of age or gender.

     

    The artworks in action

    4th year students from Nitobe Bunka Elementary & Junior High School used waste materials to create ‘souvenir’ theme products which the children are helping to sell at the shop. The proceeds go back to the school itself while helping teach children about new ways of reusing and recycling.

  • teamLab’s Enchanting Ovoids Light Up Chiba Art Festival 2021

    27.July.2021 | SPOT

    Japanese digital art collective teamLab has announced their plans to set up a public art exhibition at Chiba Art Festival 2021 which will take place at Chiba Port Park from July 31 to September 5.

    Autonomous Resonating Life and Resonating Trees, teamLab, 2017.

    team lab will be showcasing their interactive ovoid digital art exhibit Autonomous Resonating Life and Resonating Trees. The art group describes the work: ” The resisting and resonating ovoids placed amongst the trees shine. The light of the ovoids and the light of the trees are autonomous: they shine brightly and then fade slowly, as though they are breathing. When an ovoid is pushed, the colour of the light it emits changes and the tone unique to that color echos. The light that originated from that ovoid resonates out to other ovoids and trees nearby. The tone resonates out continuously in the same way as the light, spreading throughout the ovoids and trees.”

     


    Chiba Art Festival is one of several cultural programs hosted by Chiba Prefecture. The Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics are not solely for enjoying sports; they’re also an opportunity to enjoy the culture of Japan, and so the country is running many different cultural events across and around the capital. The theme of the festival is to showcase artwork that the city wishes to pass on to the next generation. Many pieces are being displayed around Chiba, including at the Chiba Prefectural Museum of Art, such as illustrations, photos, and more.
