Inori Prayer

Designer | Artist Aya Bambi
Year 2017

NORI–PRAYER is digital art collaboration between Japan-based visual design studio WOW Inc., creative production team TOKYO, the Ishikawa Watanbe Laboratory at the University of Tokyo, and iconic dance duo AyaBambi. The project was the brainchild of Nobumichi Asai, creative and technical director of WOW Inc. Inspired by the soundtrack by Yosuke Nagao’s, Asai felt the music symbolized a radioactive, destructive power. The visuals and the choreography blend together to represent “death, suffering and sadness” as well as “the opportunity to overcome.”
