KIWA Dialogue

Takashi Serizawa / Tomoko Mukai / Yuri Yoshida

Video Appearance

KIWA Project aims to explore approaches to observing and perceiving the relationships
between urban images and nature.
It emphasizes an online series “KIWA Dialogue” published in continuous dialogues
with guest collaborators, interviewees and project members.

In the online public talk “KIWA Dialogue”,
guest speakers and project members will develop further dialogues inspired by
keywords and key themes from dialogues by speakers in video appearance.

The project had planned the workshop “Inclusive Picnic”,
in which participants with different perceptual characteristics and facilitators share their relationships
to nature by using design, projected images, music, and sounds.
Though the workshop cannot be carried out due to infection prevention,
it will be introduced with a small demonstration in the public talk.



August 20, Friday, 2021

This public talk will carry out as online live streaming from the site
on the same day of the outdoor performance “At the Kiwa”.
In case of stormy weather, the performance and public talk will be postponed to August 26, Thursday.
