From the very beginning of the project, the creative team collaborated closely with our partner, Yoshimoto, as we sought to create a futuristic journey that would capture the City’s wild and creative side, while also appealing to a universal audience. For over a year, our team of artists and digital magicians were hard at work crafting a world full of quirky characters and fun interactive activities. Visitors follow the adventurous Akiyo and her fantastical new friends, Balun, Pulpo and Mariposa on their quest to reopen a portal to the future. Along the way everyone gets to join in the fun and help this zany band of characters complete their mission thanks to a variety of interactive installations. All it takes to join in is a little joy, and a smile!
