Visual-Friendly Gas Industry: Decorated Tanks in Japan

Visual-Friendly Gas Industry: Decorated Tanks in Japan

Industrial sites used to have the gloomiest feel and be the most avoided areas by locals everywhere. Recently there has been a severe change in this sector. From the decaying industrial sites in Europe turned into open-air galleries to these amazing decorated tanks in Japan, it is of no surprise to anyone that art can add a friendly feel even when it comes to a distant domain such as industry. Seen on Pink Tentacle, these “projects” are spread all through the territory of Japan. We salute these unusual projects and would love to see thousands of similar “artistic” works all over the world. This idea could be taken further and applied to several decaying structures such as building, bridges and so on. Freshome readers, would you like to see gas tanks such as these near your own city?

    Ummm aren’t these the ones seen burning up in the footage of the earthquake and tsunami disaster? If so, I’m not sure that it’s very sensitive posting this at such a time. Just a friendly pointer.
