Unidentified falling objects

Invasion of the Instant Noodles

Okamoto Mitsuhiro has a history of making things fall out of the sky. In 2015, he created an installation for the Aomori Museum of Art, entitled ‘Bakemono: Monster’, developed, he says, after he heard a false news story that a UFO had crashed into the museum. With the co-operation of the curator, he dug up the front garden of the museum, and half-buried a larger than life instant noodle pot there. His installation garnered plenty of interest, and we can’t wait to see what oversized ideas he’ll come up with next.
