Purpose of the residency

Heart of Japan, Tokyo is overflowing with massive sign boards and young new generation. There is a Wonder site studio and I imagine that I'm there to breath with the unfamiliar air. Cultural atmosphere like OTAKU is getting spread in Seoul recently. People is hiding from the system and isolating from each other in Tokyo and Seoul devoting to their own work that they want to do only. I hope that I could catch and feel those kind of moments while I'm staying in Tokyo

Plan during the residency

I hope I could reach at the traces of OTAKU's cultural background by finding the relations with environment. The cause of OTAKU could range from social uneasiness to fear from external environment like earthquake or cesium. I want to be at the street rather than my studio to feel the atmosphere of Tokyo during the program period. Research is started at Seoul reading about culture of OTAKU and behind stories.
