My love of park play equipment started when @markchronic and I used to ride our bikes around Tokyo and hang out chatting and taking photos in all the cool parks. Mark knows all the best spots. He once took me to a park in Tokyo with a time capsule! This park in Nakajo was pretty awesome colour wise.

My 2.5 month art residency is coming to an end. When I came to Nagano it was Summer and this week they forecast snow. So many memories. Today Sensei came over for lunch and I played him my 'art residency' song by the Tenniscoats. The song that will forever remind me of this residency. (Link in profile) He told me that sad songs don't make him sad, but rather, happy. Meanwhile I was holding back a few tears as he played along on my Casio SK-1. (It's up on Insta stories now). We sat on the tatami looking out at the alps, and ate mikan and drank coffee in the afternoon sun. Always so kind and positive, he said that my 見せ方 (way of showing) flowers was so nice. And I once overheard him telling someone that he was really impressed with the way I look at the world...small an artist. Miss you already Sensei xoxo

You guys! As part of my art residency I currently have an exhibition on at the Nagano Cultural and Arts Center until 20th November. If you have time, please pop in to see my handmade xylophone, some drawings, my three new Nagano zines, and sooooo many photos! I went back to the abandoned school with Sensei and Tane-san and re-created some of the scenes I found in old photos of the teachers room. @tanetanizawa was a genius with styling, opening the window to the exact same spot as the old photos we found. Each time I went to that abandoned school I cried because it was so overwhelmingly beautiful. (先生とたねさん本当にありがとうございました!) I'll be in the gallery on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning if you have a chance please come and say hello! ぜひぜひ来て下さい!お待ちしております!

You guys! The xylophone I made with Sensei! It's mostly from hinoki. Smells amazing! Sounds...chotto...😂💪🏻 I learnt a lot. Hello Sandwich tips: If you want a nice sound, you can burn the timber first. I spent last night with my ¥100 shichirin tongs over the gas stove. A few felt dots from the ¥100 store go a long way to help the sound. And you can cut a little curve or slot into the underneath of each piece if you're super dedicated and have watched enough YouTube tutorials. Also, it's worth investing in expensive power tools. AND!!! Extra special thanks to @lullatone for the personalised DIY videos. Your tutorial videos were / are the inspiration to keep trying!

Moody afternoon view from my artist in residence house. Not long to go before I'm back in Tokyo. Bittersweet.

Another trip back to the abandoned school at the top of the mountain. You have no idea how many burrs I got stuck to me to get this shot. 🌿🌾🌲🕷🐜💪🏻📷✨

It feels like I haven't seen a train in soooooo long. This train track follows the base of the mountains and would be perfect for a slow train trip with a handmade obento.

Kotatsu mornings.
Ever since moving to Japan I've A L W A Y S wanted a kotatsu. We set this up the other night and spent hours under it spotting stars and watching the full moon creep over. This morning I drank my coffee under the kotatsu and read beautiful zines. Mikan and kotatsu = perfection.
Side note: When I worked at Vogue Living I used to mark up cords for removal retouching for the prepress team and sometimes my Editor would say "Please leave the cord in". Years later, I finally get it. Cords are cool. @dc_at_home, you taught me so much! 😘💕

Still working on my handmade instruments from bamboo and timber from the local timber yard. I've been taking sound recordings of waterfalls, traditional Japanese chanting at a wedding, insects etc. I really want to try and make a Nagano track as part of this residency but it's challenging! I downloaded the trial of Abelton Live 9 last night. Dayummmm it's hard! But how amazing does the 'Push' look! W A N T ! がんばります!

Post-typhoon light. A landslide alert came over our alarm speakers overnight, and in the morning the other artist found the handmade bus stop she made had fallen over.

Today's workshop was at such a divine venue. The kind of place that would be perfect for a wedding. In a forest at the top of a mountain, with those gorgeous giant windows. We ate tonjiru and chestnut onigiri on the front steps, hosted two workshops for Nakajo citizens, sensei roasted coffee beans on the BBQ, and we finished off the day with a local TV crew filming out artworks in our artist in residence houses.
