In an adjacent room, they showed a short documentary previously aired by NHK TV. Unfortunately, they did not sell an exhibition catalog unlike in the States where they had one in English for sale (also available at Amazon).With all this interest in Japan, I hope they will be able to show it in more cities here (and in Hawai'i). I'm told that this exhibition in Tokyo is pretty much the same as the one at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in 2010. See their site for more (and clearer) photos of the art works: http://americanart.si.edu/exhibitions/online/gaman/index.cfm Geidai: http://www.geidai.ac.jp/museum/exhibit/2012/gaman/gaman_en.htmApr 23, 2014

They used whatever scrap materials they could find to create these very imaginative and intricate works of art.
