As a multimodal anthropologist using audiovisual media as a method in cultural anthropological research, the artist, working with both a 16 mm film camera and a digital video camera, focuses on the relationship of people and things in the context of Suzu ware, a kind of ceramics production from medieval times that was revived about 40 years ago in the wake of research beginning after WWII. Filmed with analog and digital cinema cameras, this is a sensory-ethnographic exploration of the cultural memory of Suzu as manifested in Suzu ware.
