Yellow Flower Dream, a work by Beatriz Milhazes has opened to the public at Inujima "Art House Project" A-Art House on November 1, 2018.

Based on the artist's perception of the architecture of A-Art House as a "sculpture uniting the surrounding community and nature", this work represents, through the use of colors overflowing with energy, a virtual landscape depicting the vitality of the geometry and daily life unfolding in Inujima's nature. While conjuring up a new rhythm, the work also stirs the imagination of the viewer.
