“With the image of the Indigo Waterfall infused onto the Shimachi River and spreading into Hyoutan Island, we unite past and present industries, local materials, nature, and water to narrate the history of the Kasuga Bridge.”
Tokushima City was built on the indigo dye industry; big indigo storehouses occupied both waterfronts surrounding Kasuga Bridge where white walls and blue stones were reflected onto the river. Tracing back to its history, the Indigo Waterfall gives new remembrance to the surrounding indigo storehouses by utilizing Tokushima City’s new LED industry and its surrounding natural beauty. By connecting LED, nature, the local culture and people, the installation will create a new image for Tokushima. As the Kasuga bridge connecting between Hyoutan island and the surrounding city, we hope that the installation can be a bridge that connects the past and future as well as Tokushima and the world.
