A series of boxes in the motif of “mass,” which change their transparency depending on the angle they are seen from. We printed texture of concrete, wood, and marble on fine mesh materials and covered them over steel frames. By maximizing the nature of the fine mesh, we created a unique effect; what appears to be a solid piece of mass when looked at from an oblique angle turns into a box with a view to its inside when approached from the front. The result is a contradiction in our perception where a heavy looking solid piece of mass alters to give the impression of transparency and lightness, exactly the opposite to our existing perception, when seen from a different angle.
This project was presented at “MATERIAL DESIGN EXHIBITION” held by Material ConneXion Tokyo.
