#6 Body Montage

横浜・寿町にて行われた当実験は、色んなことを考えさせられた。寿町に足を踏み入れようとする人間に、まさにその直前に、事前情報として、あるいは、彼/彼女に降り掛かるかもしれない出来事を危惧して、少しばかかり自分の方が「知っている」というただそれだけで、けれども、そうしたおせっかいがステレオタイプな寿町のイメージ形成に加担していることに気付きながらも、結局そのイメージを伝達していることに。何もいうべきではなかったという松渕の指摘。確かにそうである。そして山川の指摘もとても大切だった。3月11日から始まる寿町でのグループ展のようなものへは、自戒をこめて望みたいと思う。

#3 Broken public property

A various artists, archtects, sociologists, activists and communists (ah.. this is a particular person though..) in Japan argues that urban-type survival skills give us many things to re-think about a way of living in Japanese society and its problems. Actually it’s a learning idea to me, however, I have doubts about the edification that Japanese society needs absolutely the knowledge of street people, which is out of social systems. Even though there might be those who are only able to nestle up to the system, their affirmation is only based on a society consisted of micro and macro point of views. Do they really think about the society?

#2 Basement Area

I don’t really like this word explore as well as survival, even its image and its behavior. Levi-Strauss said such a thing on his book.. Anyway I don’t really like to talk to someone what I have seen and heard, as my own experience after getting into a place where it’s for me an alien territory. That kind of violence is..

It does mean though, I just don’t use the word explore but I might have done such a thing. I want to eat delicious foods and beers that someone have eaten before. If it’s good taste, I will talk this to someone, and that you have to eat it otherwise you can’t understand it. In any case, the violence of talking about something as your own experience is a matter of consciousness, even it’s enough just to know what it is. if not, you’re going to walk into a beautifull trap of politics and might assume an attitude of turning a knife in someone’s heart at the unconscious level. But there is only one person who walk into the trap consciously and enable to learn something positively with that as far as I know. That’s what I was thinking during wandering through the basement of the building in Koganei city (Tokyo), which can be called explore I guess..
