“Sound of Ikebana” 

the theme of four seasons inspired by different cultures showcases Japan’s four seasons alongside strong artistic influences of the Rimpa School. Colours representative of China, Malaysia and India have been included to acknowledge the exhibition’s staging in Asia.

Shot at 2,000 frames per second using high-speed photography, “Sound of Ikebana” is a series of videos that showcases vibrant images using various liquids (such as paints and oils) created from sound vibrations.
