wow tenspace
inspired by WOW10 artbook

concept of design :
The space between the number on count-up. That space is what we consider as time itself.
We creates that time of the space as an image into the three dimension world.
Eleven of “IKEBANAS” are created as three dimension object and arranged into the vast space.
The camera sequentially cathes those works like being thrown into the flow of time one by one.

profile :


blanc. is the critically acclaimed solo project and alter-ego of Maynard Plant, lead vocalist of the popular Japanese pop-rock band Monkey Majik. The project began in 2003 with the meeting of Maynard and Sendai City co-resident Takeshi Hanzawa of FreeTEMPO. Maynard sang and wrote the lyrics for the house tracks “Sky High”, “Duet” and “New Days” on FreeTEMPO’s 2nd album “THE WORLD IS ECHOED” under the pseudonym “blanc.”. This collaboration, now legendary, marked the beginning of blanc.’s career. Since then, blanc. has collaborated with many electronic and house musicians. In March of 2008 he produced and released his first album “new world”. blanc.’s much anticipated 2nd album “canvas” was released June 10th, 2009. The new album is a fusion of electronic, organic, house and pop music.
