Space Memory
2014. Titanium alloy. Approx. 4m x 26.5m x 5.2m (subject to change)

A brand new piece produced for this show. Total length of titanium alloy used reaches 28m. This is a large-scale sculpture featuring a delicate curve as if a dragon revealing its existence from the sky, or perhaps the memory from light years ago from a distant galaxy taking a shape. The work will be cantilevered** inside the exhibition space and will travel across three main exhibition rooms. It is impossible to see the entire piece from any spot inside the gallery; however, the viewer’s eyes will travel far away along with the slight sway of Nishino’s work. 

Other pieces scheduled to be included in this show are; Space Memory (2014), a ø5.9m ring-shaped sculpture Video of the installation of Sky Memory at 4WTC

**A type of construction that allows for a single support point. The three loads of horizontal load, vertical load and moment are supported at one xed location.
