We are pleased to announce that public art by Tokujin Yoshioka, titled “Crystal of Light”, is installed at Tokyo Metro Ginza Station from 16th October, 2020.
Ginza is the epicenter of Tokyo’s luxury shopping, and the Ginza Station welcomes the average of 257,440 passengers a day. (Average of 2019) In celebration of the station’s renewal, Tokujin Yoshioka’s “Crystal of Light” is exhibited as a new symbol of the station for decades.
“Crystal of Light” is a sculpture created by the light of 636 crystal glasses that consist of unique facets. The positions of these crystal glasses are programed based on the map of the world and designed to express the world with light.
Innumerable glows emitted from the crystal glasses come together to form one great light which conveys a wish for peace, hope for “the world to be united as one with all lives on earth.”
We hope this new cultural symbol of Ginza gives off a radiance for the bright future.
