■Organizers

Linh
Hi, I’m Linh. I’m from Vietnam and this year is my 7th year in Japan! I recently started a new career as a web designer/front-end developer so I’d love to make new friends who have interest in design or who are working in the same industry 🙂 I had so much fun when I participated in another museum tour organized by Tokyo Design in May and that’s why I decided to help hosting the event this time! I’m looking forward to strolling around the museum with you guys!

Hitomi
Hi, I’m Hitomi. I’m a UX designer/front-end dev/entrepreneur from Boston, born in Japan but raised in the US! I started this group because I didn’t know a lot of people, and wanted to find designer friends in Tokyo. I think it’d be awesome to do some team-based creativity stuff, as I’ve had some amazing experiences at some meetups back at home in Boston. I speak both English and Japanese, so if you need help with anything in Tokyo, feel free to reach out. 🙂

Mike
Hi I’m Mike. I’m a Designer from California and I recently moved to Tokyo to work, eat and play. But mostly eat. I’m still learning Japanese and in “tourist” mode for being new to living in Japan. I love exploring and eating. Did I mention food? I pretty much came back to Japan for the food. Design and stuff is just something for me to do in between meals.

■Exhibit
Shiota Chiharu: The Soul Trembles
The Largest and Most Comprehensive Exhibition Ever, Illuminating The Artist’s Entire Oeuvre

https://www.mori.art.museum/en/exhibitions/shiotachiharu/index.html
[masked] (Thu) – 10.27 (Sun)

Shiota Chiharu was born in 1972 in Osaka Prefecture and currently based in Berlin. She has been actively presenting her work all over the world by taking part in over 300 exhibitions at museums, galleries and international art shows.

The subtitle “The Soul Trembles” references the artist’s earnest hope to deliver to others soul-trembling experiences derived from nameless emotions. Through this exhibition epitomizing the “presence in absence” that Shiota has explored throughout her career, visitors will doubtless gain a sense for themselves of the meaning of living and journey of life, and the inner workings of the soul.

Shiota Chiharu is well-known for her immersive installations, in which an entire space is strung with thread, usually red or black. Spectators walking through these spaces strung with thread are made aware, experientially and visually, of the intangible: invisible connections, memories, unease, dreams, and silence. Regarding the color of the thread, Shiota has said that the black can be interpreted as the night sky or cosmos, and the red as blood, or alternatively, the “red thread of fate” that in East Asian belief binds people together.
