What is your practice?
I think that this world has too much stress. It
needs more smiles, laughs and imagination.
So I create some.
What is your definition of what Play is?
It’s play if you say its play”.
How would you relate play and creativity?
I can’t explain well, but I guess play and creativity are connected by imagination. Do you consider yourself as a playful artist?
What do you do in your practice that you feel is most relevant to play?
No, I guess I’m not an artist. I’m just a man who likes something new.
Could you specifically outline one piece of your most ‘playful’ work and explain whatyou expect from the audience/ viewers in terms of reactions and experiences?
1998 Chabudain (Japanese low table) This is a low table which can transform into robot. However it can’t be transformed by just one person., it needs two people. So this low table is a communication tool if you invite new friends to your room. I like the element of uselessness or inefficiency in it.
