Mul­ti­me­dia artist Daito Man­abe, founder of in­ter­ac­tive de­sign and pro­gram­ming firm Rhi­zomatiks Re­search, is no stranger to high-tech in­stal­la­tions. “This col­lab­o­ra­tion with Gucci and Alessan­dro Michele was a first for me though,” he says. “We worked very closely in the re­al­i­sa­tion of this room.” For the Gucci Words Room, Man­abe played with the phrase L’aveu­gle Par Amour (Love is Blind), the ti­tle of an 18th-cen­tury French novel seen on many of Michele’s de­signs, jux­ta­pos­ing the words with sym­bols and mo­tifs from Ja­panese lit­er­a­ture. The re­sult looked some­thing like a dig­i­tal pin­ball ma­chine, with sym­bols and graphics bounc­ing off Gucci prod­ucts hang­ing around the room.
