Art 173, The Shape of Space (Installation Art)



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...

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.

This looks very interesting but I'm quite lost with the concept. Do you mind clearing that up a bit?
