Purpose of the residency

In this program, I will focus on the theme of “publicness”. In 2021, the Tokyo Olympics were held amidst the divisions caused by the coronavirus. With the event, political intervention in public space was seen everywhere. Now that the event is over and time has passed, I will explore the publicness of the present using the traces left behind as clues.

Plan during the residency
  • Research on the “public sphere” and “public space” in Tokyo today (documented with photographs and videos as needed), produce a map from this research, and verify what specific divisions are being made. 
  • Research (documented as needed with photographs and video) the “loggia”, an architectural space with an ambiguous function of connecting inside and outside, and interview the creator if possible.
  • Through the above research, what kind of image is hypothesized when public space is regarded as a camera obscura? I will create artworks based on the temporality of the traces left at the site.
