0 A SMILEY FACE HIDDEN AMONG 36,445 SCREWS - An INSTALLATION By studio yumakano

This installation project by studio yumakano entails an assortment of screws, 36,445 to be precise, in varying depths, to create a tactile texture. The nails portray a pattern which represents the city, Hamamatsu, famous for its industrial hub with the manufacturing giant, Suzuki, known for its cars, motorcycles and other instruments, calling it home.

The amount of screws embedded, 36,445, is the same number of officially registered businesses located in the metropolis.

Representing microcosm and how happiness can still be found in a sea of chaos, one screw is placed featuring a smiley on its head. 

"Visitors unconsciously spent time to look for the specific screw, and all of them delighted were when someone finally picked it out from the tons of ordinary parts." said studio yumakano.
