Spectrum by Tokujin Yoshioka

The Shiseido Gallery will hold an exhibition of a new installation by Tokujin Yoshioka. This installation will show light that fills the room with infinite color, giving visitors an opportunity to experience this mysterious light. Philosopher of nature, Newton, passed light through a transparent, polyhedral prism, showing that, in light, there exists a multitudinous number of colors. We feel that we can learn more about color through nature. Through the prism, we see beautiful rainbow beams of light emitting from spectral light.


Yoshioka is well-renowned both in Japan and around the world as one of the creative people who influence the world through works created from experimental technologies and unhindered ideas in a wide range of fields such as design, art, and architecture. Until now, Tokujin Yoshioka has focused on the relationship between nature and human beings, specifically pursuing research about the sensation that light brings. With this, he expresses his creations through unique techniques that reflect this research.
