Accidental Garnish

1 / Concept

「全身白い服を着ている時に限って、泥がはねたり、コーヒーをこぼしたり、ペンキ塗り立てのベンチに座ってしまったり…。はじめは落ち込むのだが、あまりにも汚してしまうので、逆に楽しくなっていく。さらには汚れに新たな装飾性を見い出し、自ら様々な汚れの要素を探しにいく。」
ワークショップ参加者には上記のストーリーのみを提示し、全身白い服装で実際に独自の汚れを追求してもらった。他の参加者を明かさなかったため、参加者同士も自らが汚すことでその意識を共有する人を探すことになった。

It often happens that mud is splashed on, coffee is spilt over or you are sitting on a bench with wet paint, when you wear perfectly white colored clothes. In this workshop, you go out to find various elements getting some dirty spots on your white colored clothes, and you also see other people trying to make their clothes dirty excitedly. The participants, who are strangers with each other, are required to wear white colored clothes and to try to find out their own dirty but garnish spots. Each participant meets the people who could share the same sense of making dirt with each other. The event can be regarded as a kind of guerrilla performance as a form of workshop, where people share a certain sense of accidental garnish.
