Spring, 2016

In the Spring of 2016, Yoshinori Asai made this spectacular, 26 foot whale, for a performance called The Whale Man. Yoshi's ambitious project was his response to an assignment calling on students to occupy a shipping container for a week. Yoshi originally hoped to hang his whale between two shipping containers. But then the piece grew even bigger...







Yoshinori Asai, Ghost Light, Spring, 2016.
The assignment was to make a contemporary Gargoyle and install it, however briefly, on a building. Yoshi's "gargoyle" was a ghost, inspired by internally-lit lantern-floats in Japan. His performance with this piece took place at the SJSU Theatre department scene-shop.

We need a second light kit desperately! Every year these pictures are so dimly lit! Half the students had more exams right after ours and couldn't stay for the photo shoot.
