KIWA Project focuses on the relationships between urban images and “constructed nature”. It aims to create platforms for creation and dialogue through observing those relationships from across the globe and with the Japanese perspective of “Fudo” (climate). The project emphasizes the exchange and dialogue between diverse peoples – people from different fields and positions and people with various types of perceptual characteristics.
“KIWA” means a spatial edge or boundary, but it also symbolizes an extreme moment in the metamorphosis of things. Inspired by the concept of the word “KIWA”, the project has involved developing audio-visual performances, workshop(s) and “KIWA dialogues”.

Led by Tomoko Mukai, who has been engaging with spatial projections and has presented them at various sites as cultural and historical hubs in local communities, the project members consist of different fields of artistic and scientific professionals from the twenties to seventies. They aim to create platforms for creation and dialogue with professionals inside and outside the project through crossing perspectives of art and science and transcending generations and cultures.
