to fully express the concept of yuri himuro‘s exhibition to passing pedestrians, the time-controlled mechanism in the window display moves the handkerchiefs up and down at varying times. from a distance, the suspending handkerchiefs create a colorful and gradient color scheme, however upon closer inspection, the printed bouquet of flowers reveal an intricate design.
