31st Century Museum of Contemporary Spirit

Introduction

I believe “Art” is the process of learning and understanding nature. Uniqueness is one of the qualities of “good artwork” and we can also find this quality in every of us. We are all having face, eyes, ears, nose, mouth, finger-print or DNA, but those are not the same, even in identical twins. In the similarity, there are always differences. The Nature of human being is the best example of the ‘masterpiece of art’.

Freedom of expression is another quality to identicate “good artwork”. All of us used to have it when we were young, as a child, we don’t have to pretend to be smart to hide our ignorance; we had no fear or worry of hunger, shame, guilt or death etc. Unfortunately, education and socialization took that freedom away. The more we learn about values, ethics, norms, beliefs, and all cultural disciplines, the less freedom we remain.

To take back human being’s creativity and freedom of expression is my ultimate purpose. How could we bring back the confidence of creativity in us while being able to respect the differences of others? I strongly believe that every single person has his/her specific way to express their creativity, which is hidden unconsciously in their everyday life. Therefore all of us are artists who have ability to create the future society together.


Concept

It does not mean we demand to eliminate the established museums. Although museum demarcates the border, gives us the distinction what is art, and what is not. Museum might be able to standardize so-called ‘the culture’ for a society, nevertheless fells to address individual’s significance. For the 31st Century Museum of Contemporary Spirit, Kanazawa, this project aims to give people back the freedom of expression, evokes them to realize and strengthen their self-confidence in their hidden ability to create creative activities, gives them back the power to evaluate individual’s expression regardless the mainstream’s cultural or aesthetics’ value. Everyone is an artist, a curator, and an owner of a museum.

Hence every single individual has his/her unique character, and his/her own way of express their creativities unconsciously through their everyday life. From this point, it provokes me to consider the process people creates or even invent the story or specific meaning to the objects they give or be given. I believe some of their objects which have its own story and specific history must carry its own spirit and energy of creation. Sometimes monetary value cannot be given. It is not necessary that object is made of costly material. It can simply be an ordinary object for the others, but meaningful to someone’ spirit. For example gifts, wishes, postcards, rings, flowers, or just small things receiving from dear persons. It also can be from people we not even know or just really somebody who gives with good intention, love, mercy, care, sympathy, encouragement or something else. It can also be energy, vibration sending out from that object. I believe we all have these kinds of objects or at least used to touch them. But often times we tend to forget or secretly keep them only for ourselves and have no time to think about its meaning. For this project, therefore, I would like to ask collaboration form everyone to share this meaningful experience with others.
