Behind The Scenes Pop Up Positivity Japan | Fukuoka Castle
A few shots below from behind the scenes of my public projection mapping travelling visual art experience (what a mouthful), Pop Up Positivity which I produced at the base and also the top of this amazing ancient castle in Fukuoka Japan 🇯🇵 The part I liked best about hanging out here in the dark was all the cats that live inside the ruins and castle walls roaming about 🐈The art also made people happy which is the ultimate goal with this project.
The messages in this exhibition were: -unity -forgive -love -peace -hope -kindness -thanks (Thankful)
Fukuoka Castle (福岡城 Fukuoka-jō) is a Japanese castle located in Chūō-ku, Fukuoka, Japan. It is also known as Maizuru Castle (舞鶴城 Maizuru-jō) or Seki Castle (石城 Seki-jō). Completed in the early Edo period for tozama daimyō Kuroda Nagamasa, it has been decreed a historic site by the Japanese government.
The castle lies in the centre of Fukuoka, on top of Fukusaki hill. The Naka River (那珂), Naka-gawa in Japanese, acts as a natural moat on the eastern side of the castle, while the western side uses a mudflat as a natural moat. Hakata, a ward with a bustling port, is located on the opposite side of the Naka River to the east. The castle town was established on the northern side, facing the sea.
This was the second country for Pop Up Positivity, each show is different i.e. Mexico was the last spot and a whole other vibe :)
