Sayumi Yokouchi

“Spiral” is what came through from the inspirations behind this project. Cultural tassel form for both Chinese and Japanese is known as a sacred symbol such as harmony, purity, life, journey, universe, sky, etc.

A single line extends to a small continuous circle that creates three-dimensional spiral. It may go on forever and never complete, also never the same.

Each piece is consisted of various sizes of coil which are attached by soldering, then rolled and stretched. So they are slightly different in shape and size.


"螺旋 "是这个项目背后的灵感来源。中国和日本的文化流苏形式被称为和谐、纯洁、生命、旅程、宇宙、天空等神圣的象征。

一条线延伸到一个连续的小圆圈,形成立体的螺旋。它可能会一直持续下去,永远不会完整,也永远不会相同。

每件作品都是由不同规格的线圈组成,通过焊接连接,再经过卷制和拉伸。所以它们的形状和大小都略有不同。
