The design of the “installation art” was developed by Tsuyoshi Tane(DGT), a renowned Paris-based architect, together with CITIZEN’s in-house design team. Celebrating the theme of “LIGHT is TIME,” the installation is comprised of the main plates — the main movement plate that forms the foundation of all watches. The 80,000 main plates suspended in air create an inspirational space for our exhibition at Triennale di Milano

Soundsuits’ of Artist & Fashion Designer Nick Cave
"Nick Cave (born 1959 in central Missouri, USA) is an American fabric sculptor, dancer, and performance artist. He is best known for his Soundsuits: wearable fabric sculptures that are bright, whimsical, and other-worldly."
“Cave’s first Soundsuit was made of twigs. Other typical materials include dyed human hair, sisal, plastic buttons, beads, sequins, and feathers. His work is a crazy mix of media—these bunny suits are made of human hair, and others are montages of vintage finds, beads, buttons and old style needle crafts like crocheting and macrame. The finished pieces bear some resemblance to African ceremonial costumes and masks. His suits are presented for public viewing as static sculptures, but also through live performance, video, and photograph
I love his references to so many different cultures and crafts in these pieces.
