Genki-nobori

Sending encouragement on the wind!

Susumu Shingu launched the art project Genki-nobori after the devastating Tohoku Earthquake.
Genki-nobori are a variation of the Japanese carp streamers. Written messages and drawings of encouragement on the white fabric of streamers shaped like long windsocks carry wishes and prayers of hope to the struggling people who have lived through the disasters. In response to Shingu's call, over 500 people from Japan, including people from Hyogo Prefecture that experienced the Kobe Earthquake, and abroad have participated in this project.

– "Genki-nobori are the ultimate form of wind-sculptures." Susumu Shingu –
