Ryo Yamada’s Installation Connects Garden Goers to the Sky

Courtesy of

Ryo Yamada‘s “Air Garden” is a passage, but not in the traditional sense of the word. It’s not a passage that connects one point to another, since the walkway does not lead to a tangible destination, but rather a passage that connects an enclosed garden to the vastness of the open sky. The artist believes everyone shares a common desire for the sky, which represents freedom and equality. Read on after the break for more information, images and a video.
