The “A Ripple in Time” art project, which has been held in 5 locations in Tokyo since early February, is a hot topic. A collection of works recording the whole picture is on sale at bookstores nationwide, online bookstores, Pokemon Center, and NANZUKA UNDERGROUND (Jingumae).

Daniel Arsham is one of the most sought after artists in the contemporary art world, working on a variety of collaborations from high-end brands to casual brands, saying, “I want to make art familiar!” While continuing his production activities under the theme of “archeology as fiction” and growing up watching Pokemon animation, his motivation to produce works with Pokemon as the theme has not diminished, and more than 100 works have been produced. 

This book is Mr. Arsham’s first collection of Japanese versions, and contains 91 works such as 24 kinds of sculpture drawings and paintings by him who has a strong passion for Pokemon, such as Pikachu and Eevee. It contains sculptures of Pokemon “excavated 1000 years later”, and each Pokemon has a structure that allows you to thoroughly enjoy the work from various angles. If you take a closer look at his work, you will be reminded of the charm of Pokemon.

Interviews with Mr. Arsham himself and director Kunihiko Yuyama, who has been involved in the TV anime “Pokemon” series, are also posted in Japanese and English. The behind-the-scenes work of the short animation work “A Ripple in Time” by Pokémon x Daniel Arsham (exhibited at NANZUKA UNDERGROUND in front of Jingumae, Tokyo in February), which was realized by the collaboration of the two, is talked about.

In addition to general bookstores nationwide and online bookstores, this book is being held at five locations in Tokyo (NANZUKA UNDERGROUND, NANZUKA2G, 3110NZ by LDH, Sogetsu Kaikan Sogetsu Plaza, Roppongi Hills 66 Plaza) in sequence from early February.
