Entry #23


Kazuki Motani

Ryuto Kawasaki

A proposal to draw crowdsourced, ocean-themed paintings on Sony Park using specialized hydrochromic ink that only becomes visible when wet. On rainy days, the paintings emerge and make the Park appear to be submerged in water. A set of drawing boards are also set up throughout the Park, allowing visitors to draw sketches using the same hydrochromic ink.
