Activities during the residency

We continued our collaborative practice as Myriagon, which is a vessel for experimental practices around ecological questions. For the open studio, we produced a multifaceted installation that revolved around different bodies of water we encountered during the residency, from the water picked from Sumida River to the waters of Mt. Kurohime. The work also consisted of an ultrasonic audio piece based on recordings made during the residency, accompanied by riso prints, a glass vessel, and a video.

Outcome of the residency

Through various meetings with local practitioners, we were interested in looking for possibilities for long term collaborations.
