The Allegory

Drawing inspiration from Italian artist Giovanni Battista Tiepolo's iconic ceiling fresco, the designer seamlessly integrates her own painting techniques and creative context. Having observed the original work, she builds upon Giovanni's Baroque legacy, influential well into the early 17th century. The canvas effortlessly blends classic Rococo visual richness, showcasing Nagao's captivating aesthetic sense. By amalgamating Rococo elements with symbols such as baseball stadiums, consumer goods, and entertainment, she creates a visually compelling narrative, weaving together diverse beliefs.

Infinity

Wooden wall panels come alive and wander off around the interior space. Precise geometrical joints create a fluid continuous form out of numerous pieces of pressed bent wood. The entire element, made of only two different basic shapes attached together multiple times in several orientations, comes together to create an organic like natural fluid line.

And there is only one exit-lover.

Superegg

Superegg represents the rapid multiplying of single use coffee capsules, which symbolises human convenience and its impact on the environment. Appearing levitated above ground, the textured geometric superegg shape, as documented by mathematician Gabriel Lame, is dotted with random discarded coffee capsules arranged into perfect lines. The visceral experience engages the viewer from all angles and distances. Over 3000 capsules were collected via a call to action on social media and the local community. Superegg allows the viewer to peruse waste and encourages new recycling habits.

Flow With The Sprit Of Water

Often community environments are polluted by the inter- and intra-personal dissonances of their inhabitants which results in visible and invisible chaos in the surroundings. The unconscious effect of this disorder is that inhabitants regress into restlessness. This habitual and cyclical agitation influences the body, mind, and spirit. The sculptures guide, groom, purify, and strengthen the positive "chi" of a space, focusing on pleasant and peaceful outcomes. With a subtle shift in their environment, the public is guided towards a balance between their inner and external realities.
