Tokyo Obelisk - case01:Fine Art (Excess Wealth) -


Many works of the fine arts have been exhibited throughout in Tokyo as a part of the urban space.


These were displayed to hope for the development of the company or as a monument,


and each work has the unique concept and intent of the installation side.



However, people aren't always paying attention to the surroundings when they get around town.


Therefore, people don't always stop and appreciate those works if they come across them


because most of the works aren't well known in general.



Fine art is an art in pursuit of artistic value apart from the practicality.


These works which are artsy-craftsy in our daily life are


the works symbolize the basic idea of fine arts,


and indicates the role in the society of fine arts in present days.


In addition, as if those unrecognized works which are exhibited throughout the city


indicates people's disinterest of fine art in Tokyo.
