Stay, create and present in Tokyo with 3331 Arts Chiyoda's residence program
Residence Period: 2019.09.03-2019.09.30
Some themes I will be exploring during my residency are the idea of 'home', reminiscence, comfort, and finding these sentiments both within and outside of one's physical dwelling.
I will be creating pieces that focus on houses as both design elements and beautiful objects, while collecting and depicting items that evoke a feeling of 'home'. I will attempt to illustrate that feeling by exploring color palettes, found objects, and memories.
