japanese wood is a selection of the best pictures i took of wood during my recent trip. this is going to be another one of those visual rather than text-based posts.
i’ll start off with a few pieces from a little show in aomori.
i was surprised to take many pictures of wood on naoshima and teshima, two of the islands in the inland sea.
unfortunately, i arrived in front of the tadao ando museum about 10 minutes after it closed. i hope there will be a next time…
if you are wondering what’s with all the burnt wood, i’ll tell you that apparently the locals burn it in purpose, to make it more durable.
i loved this subtle wire outline. what do you think: doesn’t it qualify as street art?
here there are a few pieces from moca taipei: an artist who painted (printed?) on wood.
i have a few pictures from seoul, too. they are from a show called new wave that showcased the work of young furniture designers.
