I am taking part in this program to better understand how the way designed and everyday objects are represented Japanese contemporary culture. The contexts of design fairs and lifestyle magazines that I observe in Europe might differ sensibly from Japan. As I am basing my activities in Japan, I need to better understand the local context and adapt my work accordingly. Besides researching on those topics, I also aim to start producing some works to be exhibited in Ayumi Gallery in July 2017. Furthermore, I am interested in building up relationships with local institutions, as well as with the international authors who will be hosted at Tokyo Wonder Site.
