MONO JAPAN is developing a digital version of the artist-in-residence programme between designers in the Netherlands and traditional craftsmen and artists in Japan. A preliminary investigation will be carried out to discover the best form for the online meetings. The video conversations between the participants will be recorded and translated into documentaries that show the collaborative process within an intercultural setting. The linked participants for this first online edition are: Paul Beumer and Ykihito Kanai for exchange in the area of natural painting techniques, and Studio Nienke Hoogvliet and three organizations in Yufu City for exchange concerning the utilization of bamboo materials. The participants will develop a series of prototypes, the final works of which will be presented to the public in the Netherlands and Japan.
