Lego art project open to public participation, by New York-based Korean artist Jaye Moon. Once Moon herself has used Lego blocks to form a treehouse covering a tree, and wire and Lego parts to build the foundations of a virtual city of urban landscapes and natural scenes at Tokyo Midtown, participants will be invited to add Lego where they like to complete the works. Musubitsuku Machi was born out of a desire to encourage a sense of connection between the streets and many people, via a project in which works are produced in the streets, with the help of a variety of participants. cooperated by the LEGO Group
