Makkoi project



Year: 2003
Media: Installation (video 34min , 10 goods)
Venue: kyoto Municipal Museum of Art, kyoto, Japan)

We encounter situations that we feel “Something is strange!”, “What is that?” or “I’ve seen that before…” but we don’t pay attention so much.

I thought I could create these situations on purpose and could make a chance of the conversation between strangers. I made ten patterns of the situation, using clothes and accessories such as clothes with rice on the sleeve and umbrella whose handle and top are upside down. Then I asked ten people to wear the clothes in the public place until someone found the clothes and accessories. If he or she noticed that, the models gave catalogues and they explained the project.
