Delicious Eye Candy: Kengo Kuma's Ghostly Land Art

From the Japanese architect Kengo Kuma comes CCCWall, a gorgeous land-art installation at the University of Milan.

From the Japanese architect Kengo Kuma comes CCCWall, a gorgeous land-art installation at the University of Milan. Pretty as the pictures are, you've got to see the video of the thing in action to appreciate how beautiful it is:

Unveiled during Milan Design Week in April, the installation is a screen of sheer organza curtains strung over a secluded quadrangle like a clothes line, with ceramic tiles and stones seeded below. It was inspired by Kuma's own architectural work for the ceramic company Casalgrande Padana outside Bologna.

The tiles and stones create a yin-yang effect in the quad.


At night, the installation springs to life. Video footage projected onto the fabric darts about the courtyard, slipping over the ceramic garden in an eerie ghost dance and illuminating the surrounding loggia.

At times, it even replicates the patterns of Kuma's Casalgrande project like some sort of phantasmal twin.
