Japanese people call themselves Wajin (和人), which means peaceful or calm people. The Japanese couple Chie and Rei Ito create tranquil stories on recycled and handmade Wa-shi (Japanese paper). They do not advocate for any morality with their stories – on the contrary, they leave the readers to decide what to take away from these visual narratives. They believe complex, multifaceted and engaging stories often appear to be very simple.
Chie and Rei will talk to architect Ben Yu about spirituality and worldview and how their ideas are influenced by ancient Chinese philosophy and primitive Buddhism.
In collaboration with Northing.
