In architecture installation at the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo in 2010, architect Hideyuki Nakayama exhibited his unrealized “Tobira Project" by 1/3 scale. While all models are shrunk into smaller size, 700% enlarged pattern were printed on the picnic blankets. This scale-confusing instalattion offered experience of illusion to visitors – as if they wandered into Alice in Wonderland.
