EARTH CLOCK in Wakabadai

Earth Clock

Inagi Municipal iPlaza (Wakabadai, 2009)

Following the installation at Koshigaya LakeTown (2008), we installed yet another edition of EARTH CLOCK, this one in the elevator hall of Inagi Municipal iPlaza, a culture center opened in October in front of the Keio Line Wakabaidai Station.

Soroptimist International Inagi had contacted the city to say they wanted to gift something excellent to this building, and city hall’s introduction led to realizing this project.

As people wait for the elevator, they gaze up at Sun’s light and shadow – day and night – cast on Earth.

Every time we install an edition of EARTH CLOCK I always find the three-dimensional optical illusion intriguing. This globe also protrudes slightly from the wall.

The building stands directly in front of the exit of the station.
