From the exhibition "SEEING THROUGH THE GARDEN From East and West Nature View to Story"

Mobile House "Koan-No.3"

I also exhibited at an exhibition exhibited by about 20 students and faculty members as part of the international exchange program at Tokyo University of the Arts. The video was taken of my work at the Hiketa fishing port, which is also a symbol of the city on display. I ran a breakwater of a very attractive length with "Koan-No.3" and had a cup of tea. The luxury of having tea in your own mobile house in front of the beautiful sea. You may be happy if you accumulate what seems to be useless.

Global Art Joint Project 2017 Overview

Tokyo University of the Arts Graduate School of Fine Arts has been working with the National School of Fine Arts (Ecole des Beaux-Arts), London University of the Arts Central Saint Martins, and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago since 2015. In collaboration with each other, we are implementing the international joint class "Global Art Joint Project". Faculty members and students in the field of fine art form a unit team that transcends national and university frameworks and jointly establish various exercises to practice social art practice (social practice of contemporary art). In this joint class of the Chicago unit, faculty members and students travel between Japan and Chicago to learn the commonalities and differences between the cultures of both countries, and fieldwork, workshops, and inside and outside the studio that assume social participation based on the theme of the unit. The purpose of each of them is to broaden their complex horizons and renew, deepen, and present their expressions by conducting production activities in Japan.
