THOUGHT [with LEXUS LS]

Akinori Goto (Akinori Goto×LEXUS LS)

Japanese sensitivities and traditions have stood the test of time, being passed down for generations. By weaving these together with the latest technology, they take on distinct shapes, and provide us with new discoveries and surprises.

The LEXUS LS series exemplifies a brilliant blend of Japanese tradition and cutting edge technology; it breaks the mold for automobiles and reaffirms a uniquely Japanese ideology and aesthetic. The present work resonates with this concept, and reconstructs Japanese traditions using modern technology.

At its heart is a revolving circular form similar to those found in past toki-series works, and with use of traditional Japanese dance as a motif, it seeks to draw from uniquely Japanese motion and give shape to time itself. What can be learnt through glimpsing into this distinctly Japanese ideology and sense of beauty? This is what it seeks to explore.
