One of the best known public art works in Japan is this stainless steel construction from Yokohama Minato Mirai 21, created by the artist Hisayuki Mogami. It is called… “Mok Mok Wak Wak Yokohama Yo Yo” (and of course, in Japanese it is pronounced Moku Moku Waku Waku Yokohama Yo Yo).
And if you’re wondering about the name, the artist has a predilection for such sonorous appellations, some of his earlier creations were named “Teki Teki Teki Teki", “Dong Dong Dong Dong", “Ki Ki Ki Ki” or “Ping piko Ping". With a height of 13 meters, it is an impressive sight, especially at night time! But I don’t know anything about its meaning… what do you think?
