I kept visiting Minamisanrikucyo, in Miyagi Prefecture to collect folklores and old stories from local residents since September 2013. In October 2014, I held a workshop, “Imagine What We Cannot See”, which is based on those stories that you can superimpose wishes or hopes beyond generations. Mr Shuhei Hosoya filmed my activities and workshop. After I finished this workshop, I created 5 collages. They tell various stories that I collected combined my feelings to people in Tokura who I had met.

“Tell a story” (5 collages)
“ Origin of the Name of Niwatari Shrine” (picture book by children who join the workshop)
“Makiko Yamamoto -Imagine What We Cannot See-” (movie made by Shuhei Hosoya)
