oiwa2

Constructed at a former soy sauce factory for this year’s Setouchi Triennale art festival, Oscar Oiwa’s “Oiwa Island 2” is an immersive 360 degree drawing set inside a 40-foot inflatable dome. The trippy black and white landscape features a cabin on the shores of a beach and gradually becomes more abstract the further out it moves from the cabin door (which also acts as the dome’s entrance). More images and short video below!
