Takahiro Ishii – Artist in Residence – 4 April to 25 June.’During my residency I’ll research how stones are used differently between Japan and England, mainly in gardens.

Through this research, I want to have another look at methods of using stone in Japan (pattern, anti-pattern) and to make art works that explore the methods, through creating installation works and drawings.

During this research I will be uploading texts, drawings and photo’s of my research process to the Blog, and making archives to show how I use those methods in my art works.

Because I guess, it’s too difficult to understand cultural difference only through language explanation, I want to visualize the differences through the Blog site’.
