AIR 3331

AIR3331 Alternatinve Tokyo vol.3

Artist in residencies (AIR) are "mechanisms for the movement of artists". At 3331, with expectations that artists will become magnets linking to networks on a community level, an AIR program has been run with art production and stay for artists on the move at its base.
In bringing artists and organizations whose activities are pivoted within localities to the Kanda area of Chiyoda Ward for a temporary period, ways of seeing new things, and new forms of expression caused by new thought processes are found through the artists, and introduced to the community. This has created opportunities for the community to encounter fresh perspectives and approaches to new things that had hereto never existed, or had yet to be undertaken. How will 3331 continue to embrace the myriad "objects" and "actions" attracted by artists who act as powerful magnets within this program? In stimulating the spirit of those involved, the activities of 3331 become flexible and stronger. And, upon returning to their own community at the end of their residence, and upon being released from their magnetic force, the objects and actions which clung to the artists and were carried back with them will fall softly on their soil. In this way, the "objects" and "actions" of a place will, through the movement of artists, no longer be "objects" or "actions" limited to one location.  I believe it is the repetition of these multiple processes occurring in synchronization that will create a broad new world.
