Matsushita Electric Works Ltd. Art Project

Public & Corporate Art Consulting

This art project was commissioned by Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Ltd. (now Panasonic Corporation) for the company's new office building in Tokyo's Shiodome area. N&A installed several artworks selected for their subtle elegance and gentle airiness that would complement the building's delicate architectural design. Suspended in midair is a bright white sculpture by Maurice Joosten, his first in Japan, its shape shifting with the perspective of the viewer and expressing the flow of time in a single, unbroken continuum. A painting by Isao Sato, created through a multi-layering process, is hung vertically, in perfect proportion to the atrium walls. 【Artists】 Maurice Joosten (Netherlands), Isao Sato (Japan), Satoko Masuda (Japan) 【Basic information】 Location: Higashi-Shinbashi, Minato-ku, Tokyo Completed: 2003 Commissioned by: Matsushita Electric Co., Ltd.
