This is a collection of works made during a research trip to Japan. The exhibition took place in the Sculpture Department of Musashino Art University, Tokyo in November 2014.

After my degree show at Slade I was very fortunate to receive a Boise Travel Scholarship, which funded this research trip. Musashino Art University kindly invited me to work in their studios first three weeks of my visit, before I set off around the country to see some of the oldest wooden buildings in the world.
