Crowd Cloud

Haneda Airport hosts Crowd Cloud, an installation of huge horns conversing with each other to symbolize people waiting for friends and relatives. Created by sound artist and designer Yuri Suzuki and musical artist and composer Miyu Hosoi, the work fills the air with musical renditions of the Japanese language, created by Hosoi sampling around 7,000 hiragana files using her own voice.

Crowd Cloud is part of CULTURE GATE to JAPAN a new contemporary art exhibition to showcase Japan’s regional diversity. Taking place at seven Japanese airports until September 2021, this exhibition can also be explored online.
