Hiroshi Fuji is a well-known installation artist and social activist born in Kagoshima City  and working all around the globe. He produces large-scale installations, performances and events with a focus on the community and the use of discarded materials. For his latest show, recycled toys were collected from about 1,000 locations – shops, parks, museums, private homes and community centers all over Japan – to be reused in creative activities like public workshops or art installations.
This brilliant installation brings up childhood memories exposing visitors to random old stuff. From Mickey Mouse to Doraemon , colorful plastic toys become giant monsters  or landscapes thanks to Fuji’s creative eye. A project based on education, entertainment and cooperation activities between kids and grown-ups, this magical toy landscape is in fact a big statement on trash and its huge creative potential.
