After reading an interview in which Murakami discussed the influence that Star Wars (and other sci fi) has had on his work, I thought a visual pairing might be of interest:
Tan Tan Bo, 2001 by Takashi Murakami.
Plus: A time lapse video of Murakami sculptures going up at the Brooklyn Museum. (This link will only be available for the duration of the show…because lord knows what could happen if people could access this sort of information once the pieces come down.)
