About the Exhibition

Dai Fujiwara is a designer who continues to transcend creative borders. From textiles to product design and beyond, Fujiwara has proposed and delivered dynamic and innovative projects to corporations, educational organisations and the community through his bold and unconventional ideas.  

This exhibition is a first-ever look into his earliest works tracing from his time as a student of design up to his most recent creations. It is an exploration into his journey that started with creating objects by hand and gradually expanded into design engineering and addressing social issues. 

Fujiwara’s most recent works are two projects that bring creativity in cyberspace into reality. The first is a film featuring a sweater, knitted from yarn made from animal hairs and debris gathered with a handheld vacuum cleaner in the plains of Mongolia and international metropolises (New York and Tokyo). The other is a homage to Matisse, featuring a garment created from a fabric with patterns drawn by a drone as an extension of the hand. 

This is the road travelled by the creative, meditative hands of Dai Fujiwara. A journey through different realms, from nature and technology to design, art, community and society; and travels through the past, present, and future, blurring the borders of each. This state can be likened to the sky; always above us but changing with every passing minute. 2021, the world is facing its moment of truth and we hope that you will take this time to survey the works of Dai Fujiwara and his challenge in bringing forth new values at a scale as limitless as the sky.
