Exhibition at the Naples Science Canter
September 5th, 2015
At the Naples Science Center (Citta della scienza Napoli), we made an installation with objects collected in Japan, Burkina Faso, and Italy. We did not put captions to the objects in order not to distract viewers’ imagination, and created the exhibition concept sheets and place them in the hall instead.
