Tokolo Asao + Hiramoto Tomoki + Iguchi Kota
At the opening ceremony for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, drones formed a globe in the sky in the kumi-ichimatsu-mon pattern−one of the traditional Japanese checkered patterns. That globe, which was created by ﬁtting a rectangle into each face of a disdyakis triacontahedron generated from a rhombic triacontahedron, will be reconﬁgured for this project as a new installation. The project is a collaboration by Tokolo Asao, the designer of the ofﬁcial Tokyo 2020 Olympics emblem, and who was involved in the opening ceremony’s drone display, Hiramoto Tomoki, who used digital fabrication technology to create the podium out of scrap plastic, and Iguchi Kota, who designed the “kinetic sport pictograms” also featured at the Games. It will take the form of a richly varied video installation, to be presented at the 15th Yebisu International Festival for Art & Alternative Visions in February 2023.
