SAKE BOTTLE ARTWORK CONCEPT
I have overlaid a segment of the plan of Nishinomiya City using an abstract but informative drawing system called a ‘figure ground diagram’ which focuses on the visual relationship between built and unbuilt space which is represented in black and white using the bottle as a canvas. Additional colours can be observed in green (parkland) blue (water) and red which identifies the Hakutaka factory location.
