Artificial Topography

Kobe , Japan

Ryumei Fujiki

Winner of Grand Prize of Art in Container International Competition in Kobe Biennial 2011 in Japan


Kobe, Japan, 2011-11-03 - Big Furniture Like a Cave. My idea is to hollow out the volume inside a container in order to build amorphous space like a cave. This “Artificial Topography” is made of only plastic material as same as my famous work “Aqua-scape”. About 1000 sheets of the soft plastic material of 10-mm thickness were cut down in contour line form, and were laminated like a stratum. This is not only art work but also one big furniture. Because all the portions are soft like a sofa, and person who enter into this space can relax by finding the place suitable for the form of its own body.

As The Nature-oriented Architecture

I am a great interest in nature especially the system of nature. Two years ago, the exhibition “Aqua-scape: The Nature-oriented Architecture of Ryumei Fujiki” held in England. In the exhibition, a lot of experimental architectural projects that had worked up in the Fujiki Studio of Kogakuin University and the execution works which I had cooperated with Yukiko Sato as F.A.D.S in each category that I obtained the inspiration from nature such as “Solar”, “Air”, ”Water”, ”Ground”, “Crystal”, “Biological”, “Flower”, and “Aurora” were exhibited. Because these aimed to approach “Nature” more closely, it was named “Nature-oriented Architecture”.
And therefore, this “Artificial Topography” is the recent project of the Nature-oriented Architecture as “Ground” category.
