A project established in 2018 for the purpose of expanding the regional framework of art, rethinking different countries and cities centered on Japan as one region from a larger perspective through the intersection of experience and personal experience.
Moreover, without limiting the scope of expansion to one of region and considering art forms like music, dance, and art as sharing the same “expressive method,” the project presents ambitious experiments and works that suggest the possibility of new receptivity to visual and auditory information, including sound and body movement; something which can occur when movement, sound and space are constructed anew through the meeting (intersection) of artists in each individual field.
