This workshop at SooVAC teaches people four types of bookbinding techniques through making four different kinds of breakfast-food books: Japanese stab binding for toast (choices are white bread, whole wheat and marble rye), saddle stitch for fruit (choices are apples and oranges), accordion folds for cheese (choices are blue cheese, cheddar and Swiss) and brass binding for fried eggs. All of the ingredients and tools will be provided for the workshop and throughout the exhibition. People can sit at a dining table and make food books of their choice and take them home with compostable sandwich bags. The first people who come can bind bread books that have jelly illustrations. The people who come late at the opening will very like to get the moldy bread.

When I was in Japan, I encountered the unique cards called “etegami.” They are cards with simple images that you paint, along with some heart-felt words echoing the image and reflect your feelings. The motto of Etegami is “It’s fine to be clumsy. It’s good to be clumsy.” This idea really fascinates me. I started to make those cards for friends whenever I want to relax from my serious work.
Chirashi Sushi Letterset
I grew up with lots of creative stationeries that propelled me to think about mundane objects from different perspectives. To pay it forward, I want to design products that inspire the users. The letterset comes in a bento box, with chopsticks-like pencils for writing and wasabi stickers for sealing the envelope. Each sheet comes with raw fish and rice.
The Goose Living By Spyhouse
There is a goose lantern by the window in the apartment right across Spyhouse. Once in a while, its owner changes its outfit. I have been documenting the goose’s fashion since the first time I met it, and I turned its series of apparel into a pattern. Lots of the outfits in the photos happened after I designed the first pattern, so I will add them to the repeat.
