Exhibitions | TAKEO PAPER SHOW 2002 - PLEASE


Start with a single sheet of paper

In addition to being the magic word, “please” has the meaning of giving joy or producing satisfaction.
The imagination needed to create a world that everyone finds joyful and satisfying begins by wondering how to use a single sheet of paper.
A symbol wall made by printers was installed on the atrium slope wall.
The creators participating in the PLEASE exhibition represented a new generation - 32 young creators from around the world.
