Invisible people? Frozen clothing on display.
A “Frozen Pants” display was held in front of Takinoue Town Culture Centre in the Okhotsk region on February 6. Articles of clothing were frozen in full-form shapes to look like invisible people are wearing them.
The Takinoue Town Board of Education organized the exhibition to brighten the lives of townspeople who are voluntarily staying at home to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus. Ten townspeople worked on creating the frozen clothing statues from the morning of the exhibition day. The participants brought ten pieces of clothing, including denim jeans and uniforms for the professional baseball team Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters. They immersed the clothing in water, shaped the clothing by inserting balloons inside it, and waited for the outfits to freeze.
All of the clothes were lined up on the morning of February 7, and the exhibit lasted through February 8.
