Interactive Art Project in Kyoto

Monday, January 15, 2007 Posted: 05:59 PM JST

Kyoto-based photographer/designer/artist Markuz Wernli interacted with the citizens of Kyoto last Autumn with his Momentarium Project. For 59 days, Wernli offered one-hour "public interventions" with the theme "at your service". He would for example perform a tea ceremony on a busy sidewalk in the center of Kyoto, or stick thank you notes for garbage collectors on trash bags (what a nice thing to do!). His very human and fun project has been summarized on a small video clip (click on "FULL STORY" to watch it) on which Wernli himself explains what and why he did. FUN!

Film screening followed by an open discussion:

The now legendary Sir Ernest Mason Satow (1843-1929) was a member of the British legation in Tokyo for twenty-one years. This classic book is based on the author's detailed diary, personal encounters, and keen memory. In it, Satow records the history of the critical years of social and political upheaval that accompanied Japan's first encounters with the West around the time of the Meiji Restoration. Fascinating.
