Wow, Tokujin Yoshioka staged his installation work Snow a few years back as part of the Sensing Nature exhibition at Mori Art Museum, and we’re now looking at the video footage and swooning over the rapturous visual feast.

Originally conceived as a window display for Issey Miyake in 1997, the work was expanded and staged at Mori to take up a 15-meter wide space, with a thick bed of white feathers that dramatically stir, get shot into the air, and then fall back down slowly — looking just like snow.
