Nature Factory by Makoto Tanijir is an art installation housed inside Diesel's Tokyo Denim Gallery and it's a stunning, tangled mess of plastic pipes and joints. It completely reminds me of the old Windows 98 'Pipes Screensaver'!
The Diesel Denim Gallery, found in Tokyo and New York, is a store known to house only the "most prestigious" Diesel collections while supporting and exhibiting the works of upcoming 'hot' artists. The concept of this particular installation is explained as:
"Denim as recognized work clothes formerly has, at times, shown different expressions as fashion items to the people. Equally, a group of plumbing, usually unnoticed, shows completely different expressions under the name of "Nature Factory". The complex plumbing, trailing by the wall in all directions will cover all over the space. It is like a tree grown over a long time. An atmosphere like a natural arbor is created in the space covered with artificial plumbing."
