Takahiro Okuwaki e-mailed me in April 2021. We had not seen each other for years but we were facing the same struggles. After experiencing the Great East Japan Earthquake 10 years ago, we could not avoid feeling a sense of discomfort whenever we are asked, “What can art do?” We suffer because we do not know where this sense of discomfort comes from. We start going back through time to arrive at the beginning of what we call “modern.” I would like to study again and think about it again from a different perspective. Okuwaki lives in Aomori, and I live in Miyagi. What would be the practices required in big cities, and how we can develop our behaviors from them? I would like to try my best in answering these questions regardless of the time it may require. (Shiga)
