Entry #3

Infinite Space

Ken Nishimaru

A number of rectangular boxes are installed within Sony Park, whose translucent walls double as projection screens that visually connect each box to its counterparts located in other parts of the world. The boxes are open for public use, and can at times also be rented out as meeting rooms, popup stores, etc. Sony Park will serve as a hub of an international network of digitally linked boxes, through which people from remote locations and cultures can interact.
