THROUGH Opening Party

The very first epoch opening exhibition, THROUGH - The Future of Visualization-  will be held from December 6th to 23rd, 2018. Co-curated by Japan Display, Inc., this exhibition further pursues the possibility of their most recent beta product called ‘transparency display’ by pushing its capability beyond the existing boundary as “display parts” and exhibiting its value as visually artistic interactive lighting product. The exhibition is an experimental collaboration of cultures that asks us, “Is transparency a possibility in our future of visualization?”

The creation of this gallery itself was a state of the art collaboration between talents of both Tokyo and New York. All Sensingnet staff will be thrilled for you to join us for the opening party and experience the possibilities beyond your imagination. 

Please see below for opening information and RSVP here.

We look forward to seeing you!
