Local Emerging Creator Residency Program
|Participating Project||Local Emerging Creator Residency Program
|City / Place stayed||Tokyo
|Period||2023.9 - 2023.11
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.
