Stopped by the Hamada Childrens Art Museum to check out the latest exhibit, owing much to Christo methinks.
The building is covered with 53,000 handerkerchiefs knotted together. Each handkerchief measures 30cms by 30 cms.
Its part of Tsunaide Aato ( Connection Art) a collaboration between 6 Japanese artists.
On Saturday the hankies come down off the building and then the garden and grounds of the museum will be covered in hankies.
It makes for some interesting light inside the building.
Hamada Childrens Museum of Art is located on the hilltop next to the University of Shimane, overlooking downtown Hamada.
