Q. Tell Me about Yourself

I enjoy analyzing or planning structures. I dislike being disappointed in people during collaboration. I fearlessly strive to expand my encounters with something different, which tend to begin with a sense of personal curiosity.

Q. What Is Your Driving Force or Inspiration of Your Practice?

Questions like “Am I the only one who gets troubles by these?” and willingness to solve such problems. Encounters and collaborations stemming from such inquiries. The voice that says, “I want to work with you.”

Q. What is a Teaching Artist?
Describe the Teaching Artist You Would Like to Become in Ten Years.

An artist, teaching artist, project manager, and many more. While what each of these titles entails is different from others, such differences may not be easily recognized by people outside the field of art education.

If I am still living as a teaching artist in ten years, I would like to be able to clearly define my identity, values, and goals regardless of external expectations and definitions.

Q. What is the Metaphor, the Right Word, for your Practice?
And Why?

Interaction and expansion. These are what led me to this path.

Q. What Do Colleagues Mean to You?

People who walk the same path as me, being in a dialogue together. Here and now, I am already with my colleagues.
