Universe of Words, when every word is a wish
Universe of Words is the name of the incredible installation by architect Emmanuelle Moureaux, inspired by Japanese culture.
The work was designed to celebrate the centenary of a Japanese soft drink company: each piece of paper is cut into a symbol of the Japanese hiragana writing system.
“The universe created by these floating hiraganas evokes a strong emotion through its quietness and its infinity”.
The installation features 46 hiragana characters that have been aligned by color in three-dimensional grids. The sections of the installation have been removed so that visitors can come into contact with an immersive and all-encompassing reality.
Universe of Words is part of Emmanuelle Moureaux’s 100 Colors series, if you want to know more, visit the artist’s website here.
