Purpose of the residency

I would like to explore methods in creating a collective work which involves the idea of the city as a Home in a larger context in which the Strangers whom we cross path with everyday are the ones sharing this collective home with us, also using the Objects of daily life to discover the habits and way of life in a city. It attempts to use the process of this work as a proactive action to address the idea of estrangement rather then to represent this condition in the final outcome. This work is in conjunction with the Singapore Arts Festival 2009.

Plan during the residency

- to work with Chisato Matsuba and Akira Ohnuma, also friends and strangers.
- to devise and test out methods to interact with strangers in relation to daily objects in Tokyo.
- to discover collective spaces that can be defined as home in Tokyo.
- using collected data to transform found objects and to generate a space finally.
