Workshop #1

現実と想像の地表 猿橋探索

“Reality and imagination of surface / Exploring Saruhashi”


A workshop was held to explore the area around the studio with the
participants. The workshop was scheduled to be held in October but was postponed to Saturday, 2nd November due to a direct hit from Typhoon No. 19. As a result, we came to a deeper understanding that Saruhashi is a remote area where the history of the threat of natural disasters are engraved on its riverfront.on the Saruhashi’s riverfront.


In the first half, Suwabe was in charge of facilitating this workshop. Based on the concept of topographical exploration, we picked up stones along the riverside, and each participant wrote down the places where they picked up the stones on a map.

We carried the stones that we had picked up at the riverbed into the atelier. In the afternoon, following Inoue and Ishiguro’s instructions, we had a workshop in which each of us walked around the studio with a stone in our hands. It was an interesting experience to gain a faint feeling of the relationship between the Atelier, people and stones existences by moving our bodies.
