Hiroshi Fuji’s popular works are typically the eclectic kind, and his latest installation is an intricately designed and organized one comprised of 50,000 toys. As children grow up so fast, they go through toys at a rampant rate. The toys are quickly discarded– which creates a whole lot of waste.
The installation was brought to 3331 Arts Chiyoda in Japan and his original premise began as a mound of ‘trash’ and ended up with all of the varying colors and toys grouped with their like hues. Each color had a great sculpture to go along with it. Dinosaurs, birds and winding walkways were the interesting part of the colorful piles; and Hiroshi Fuji is of course sitting on top of it all, proudly.
