  • Atrium Installation
    Oita Sightseeing Wall “Mai Miyake’s World Cuckoo-Clock― WORLD could be a safer place CLOCK”

    February 23, 2015

    "Kankou"(sightseeing) literally means "to show/see the light": in other words, "to show/see local excellence." On the Oita Sightseeing Wall, excellent objects and artworks from Oita appear as displayed through the eyes of a contemporary artist. Mai Miyake, a contemporary artist active both domestically and internationally, worked on the project "Cuckoo-Clock for the World". The project aims to call back doves (symbols of peace) to the world by creating peace (safety) for even the smallest units of society, such as one’s family, company, and hometown. Due to this project, the west area of OPAM’s atrium will be filled with “the light of Oita."
