Stay, create and present in th heart of Tokyo
Residence Period: 2018.01.12-2018.01.18
My time in Japan will include fieldwork on Yonaguni Island, a site that, according to scientists and historians, has a disputed origin thereby prompting archaeologists to question whether it is in fact a natural form or cultural artefact. My time in Tokyo will include accessing specific collections, pertinent to the imaging and recording of archeological artefacts, at the Tokyo Photographic Art Museum and The National Archives of Japan.
