Symbols and Rituals is the NYC-based creative studio of Eri Nagasaka and Nanse Kawashima. Prolific and diverse, the two work widely across the fields of art, design, and fashion. For the holidays, The Avant/Garde Diaries commissioned the two to create an immersive and light-filled installation that both enchanted and confounded the viewer. “Toward the Light” was the result, and if you couldn’t swing by during the holiday break to see for yourself, take a peek at the film above which captures the installation and our little party to celebrate it. Below, Kawashima answers a few questions about the methodology behind the installation and about the background of S+R.
