As you proceed slowly, looking sideways at the café on the ground floor, you will see the spiral ramp that gave the building its name, in the atrium space. In the space that looks like a telescope removed from the observatory, a huge abstract painting is exhibited. In addition to the huge work, works were displayed along the slope leading up to the second floor. The space was filled with soft paintings that seemed to capture the fluffy light. On that day, Spiral Garden was holding an exhibition of Asae Soya's "tokotokofuwari."
As I walked up the spiral ramp looking at the artwork, one might think that the endless slope was filled with countless works. But that is not true. The gently ascending slope quickly leads to a select store of miscellaneous goods. A slope unfolds so smoothly that it feels as if the artwork in front of me has been absorbed by the fashionable goods.
I decided to immerse myself in the world of light and color a little longer, so I left the select store and looked at the space from above, where the artworks were arranged. As I looked at the works of art displayed along the ramp, each piece seemed to be an entry light leading visitors into the select store. It was no wonder that I found myself in the select store in no time at all.
