Kashima 2012 – artist in residency in Beppu, Japan

Posted on Juni 23, 2012 by Volker Morawe

In spring 2012 i did an artist in residency in one of my most favorite contry: Japan.  I was invited by an organization called Beppu Project to develop an art toy for children. The result is a tiltable labyrinth table for two players which is controled by singing. Beppu which is located in the prefecture Kyushu in the south of Japan is well known for it’s magnificent hot spring culture.

Beppu Project is a young organization which stimulates contempory art in this hotspring town. Further more they are organazing an interesting art triennale called Beppu mixed bathing world .
