House of Octopus on Takamijima


House of Octopus by Ohji Yoshino was a pretty fun artwork on Takamijima during the Setouchi Triennale 2013.

I have no idea whether it has been dismantled or if it’ll be available again in 2016. All I know is that it isn’t open at the moment.

So here is a small retrospective of this nice installation (and possibly a preview for 2016? No idea)

You may already know, but in case you’re wondering, those pots are octopus traps.

  1. Ha, that third octopus table reminds me of one of the bosses from Final Fantasy IV. =P
