THE SECOND EPISODE OF 'MICROPERSPECTIVES' AS TOLD BY FILMMAKER MUSHI.
The artist featured in this 2nd episode is Miyakawa Sono. After having moved from Tokyo to Beppu, her interest currently lies in creating spaces for people to gather using the medium of food. In this interview, she shares her thoughts on the relationship between her Bauhaus concept of architecture and food. Food isn’t simply about taste, it is something that can also create spaces and memories.
I’ve met Sono at various events she organised in her studio. With her creative vision, she provided a space and reason for people to gather. Upon this spatial creation using the medium of food, she provided all the ingredients for people to start freely conversing with one another and for us to create our own memories and places within her provided space. What Sono does well, from my perspective, is ‘sharing’.
Of course, she is presenting her works to people that come to her events, but her aim is not only to surprise people with an interesting angle and taste, but also for people to create their own ideas, feelings, and relationships. Here, Sono is the creator and architect of that space and ‘we', the audience and guests to her events, become the 'place makers’ returning home with not only a happy stomach, but most importantly our memories.
