Shiseido Ginza Building Window Display “Wording from Shinzo Fukuhara”


 

 

We worked on the Shiseido Ginza building 1st floor window display again since last time we worked on it in the autumn last year.

This time, we are exhibiting the display showcasing the words of the founder of Shiseido, Mr. Shinzo Fukuhara.
He left a huge impact as a photographer, displaying his artistic and cultural talent. At the same time, he had entrepreneurial quality; his philosophical art sense left footprints in the activities of Shiseido which stays even today.
This time, we selected quotes from a massive bank of 1.45 million letters written by Mr. Fukuhara, and created an installation art using contemporary technologies such as LED Display, Laser Processing, computer-control. Mr. Fukuhara’s quotes keep on flowing inside the speech-bubble-shaped display while changing its color and position.
Enjoy this new visual expression of text which is innovatively different from the conventional paper and printed methods.
