The design for this exhibition gallery, featuring the works of 200 artists in business card format, is themed around the Olympic Games. We aimed to create a meeting place where 200 different card designs meet, revealing a complex interaction between individual cards and the whole. We inserted the business cards in Styrofoam (confer the paper's fine properties, reuse after removal in a temporary space planning). Visitors remove cards of interest, thus changing the exhibit density, which in turn shifts their own focus. This results in a complex and beautiful facade that changes from one moment to the next, like the Japanese Sakura (cherry) tree.
