Giant Artificial Aluminum Mountains Show How Climate Change Works


The Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo is the place where visitors have now the opportunity to observe a beautiful "Aluminum Landscape" that shows the influence of the position of the sun, wind alterations, as well as rain flow on our climate.

The giant installation covers an area of 115,000 sq. ft and it reflects the operation and changes of elements in our world. It is mounted in the sunken garden found on the second basement floor of the museum.

The entire picture is shown to visitors 8 meters over the exhibit.

It is worth mentioning that the silver landscape was made using aluminum foil rolls and scotch tape. Part of the materials was brought by various office employees.

The work of Kimihiko Okada will be re-purposed into something new after the exhibition.
