Warehouse Installation Images - Part 2: The Finished Installation

The Bandai Warehouse installation opened on October 20th and runs through December 16th.  Here are some images from the finished installation.

A view from the front door the night before the entrance wall went up.

The title wall at the installation's entrance.  On the left the names of all the indigo dyers who participated in the project.

Inside the warehouse with actual lighting.

The installation with natural light from the side door.

Backlight indigo cloths.  The cloths were arranged to both emphasize their individual colors and create a sense of the unity of color that binds the farmers, processors, and dyers together in the tradition of Awa Indigo.

The indigo cloths in the natural light by the entrance.  The 247 lengths of cloth used in the project were dyed by 44 professional indigo dyers from throughout Japan.  All of the dyers use the indigo grown and processed in Tokushima.

The list of dyers on the installation's title wall.  The numbers on the list correspond to the numbers recorded on the badges.  People who made badges at any of the six Returning Indigo sites can learn just who dyed the cloth they selected for their badge.

A peak from above all of the indigo cloths!  This is what we saw as we were installing.
