Emmanuelle Moureaux – Eda

DESIGNTIDE TOKYO 2010

For the first exhibition of “eda”, Emmanuelle Moureaux designed an installation using 2000 pieces (eda). 900 colorful “eda” (suspended type) and 1100 white “eda” (standing alone type) composed and structured the space.

Called eda, which means ‘branch’ in Japanese, the space has been filled with clusters of 200 overlapping coloured branching sticks. The coloured branches are suspended from the ceiling, whilst the white ones stand on the floor.

Beauty shown by plants in the natural world. Spreads of trees, colors of flowers, flows of leaf veins, linkages of cells. Everything is in a systematic harmony. In eda, forms are determined according to the natural system.

eda is assemblages of fine lines. Each line exists straight, and large complexities contain small simplicities. Biological forms overlap rhythmically, link air with another and create new space orders (“eda” meaning “ branch” in Japanese, is a product which creates spaces).
