While browsing the latest Louis Vuitton designs at the Omotesando store in Japan, check out the 'Madness is Part of Life' art installation by Ernesto Neto. It is located in the Espace Louis Vuitton gallery in Tokyo.

Neto's art installation is a woven canopy that hangs from the ceiling of the store. Guests are able to walk and play on the yarn bridge, enjoy the view from the windows and get a better look at the space surrounding them. The art piece questions the placement of madness in an individual's life, concluding that in a world that is filled with so much feeling and chaos, madness is a necessary, even welcoming trait. It relieves the tension of always striving to be politically astute.

The Madness is Part of Life installation disrupts the otherwise posh atmosphere associated with the high-end merchandise stores. Adults are able to become inquisitive children as they walk along the web-like path.
