Nomura Kazuhiro's Altar of Laughter
Donate Your Buttons to an Artistic Cause!

* We have finished accepting the donations. Thank you for your interest.

We are looking for people who are willing to provide buttons free of charge for Nomura Kazuhiro's installation Altar of Laughter to be shown at “Roppongi Crossing 2016” exhibition. Perhaps you have buttons on old clothes you no longer wear or buttons lying around somewhere at home... buttons of any shape, size or color are welcome.

Nomura Kazuhiro: Altar of Laughter
Altar of Laughter is a kind of “land on a target” game in which old used buttons of various shapes and colors are thrown so as to land on small objects. The more the buttons become scattered around the floor, the more the floor changes in appearance. The challenge itself is fun but it’s also fun to see how the installation transforms.
