んとよ、こごさ ポケットあっと思ってけろな。 んでそっからなんでもすぎななででくっとすっと何いいべな。書いでみねがい。絵さしてもいいなだ。 ほしたらそいず ポケットんながさいっちょくべ。ほがの人書いだなも見でみ。"If you could find anything you like in a pocket what would it be? Write it. Draw it. Leave it in a pocket. Read what others said.”
What Dwelling means to you? A space could be divided into this side and the other side by a piece of wall. What dose this side mean to you? What about the other side?
When I still lived in my parents house that was a newly built large modern house in suburban Tokyo, I did not enjoy being there. It was such a great feeling to live in my own old small studio apartment with sharing vault toilet. You never know what makes someone happy.
ぺらぺらの紙切れで空間を区切ってみる。あっち側とこっち側。 あなたにとってこっち側はどんな意味がある？ あっち側は？ 東京郊外で新築のそこそこ大きな実家に住んでいたけれど、２０歳の頃、汲み取り共同トイレの小さなアパートに引っ越した。親の立場になれば色々思うことはあるけれど、私の立場になって思えるのは私だけなので。引っ越してよかった。その数年後には、日本を出てしまったわけだけれど。
DWELLING WITH THOUSAND WINDOWS: Sep.23, Sat, 12-7pm. Simply come over to Murray Playground on 21st Street x 45th Ave, Long Island City, NY. ( Take 7train to Court Sq station. E/M/G lines won’t stop at this station this weekend) or come with used window envelopes if you have any. We will be working on a green circle under the trees right inside from 21st Street entrance. Starting around noon, help me building dwelling, put rope between trees and hung large window drapes with balance. Walk in and out of the see-through window walls. See other side. Go to the other side. What dwelling means to you. Write/Draw about it. Leave your note for Queens Art Intervention exhibit at Queens Museum in December.
