Apr. 13sat—21sun, 2019

「必要なもの  欲しいもの  使うもの」この三つの関係性について、ジェームス ギブソン氏と共に考えるイベントです。あなたがものに手を伸ばす時、何を感じてそうしているのでしょうか?何が必要なのか、何が欲しいのか、なぜそれらを使うのか。これらを考えることは、あなた自身をより深く知るきっかけになるかもしれません。


The things I need, the things I want and the things I use.




I need the things I need, without then I can not live.
I don't need the things I want and can live without them.
The things I use, I need to live, but don't want.

I want the things I want, sometimes for reasons inexplicable.

 



The ultimate act of freedom is to effectuate action on your world, simply for the joy of doing so and for no external reasons. A lesson we learn at an early age, the pure act of creativity.

In an attempt to understand my relationship with the things I need, want and use, I will endeavour to make a collection of archetypes, exploring my emotional connection to each and every one. Some may seem to have a clear function, while with others, their purpose may feel ambiguous. Yet in all cases, it is an expression of joy.
