Embodiment Design Program
In our highly information-oriented and established world we are forced to live in an environment where time, space and human activities are all over scale in our daily lives. In this current society where people depend on extremely complicated systems which are beyond our control, we face many problems which stem from this situation. Regarding the level of anonymity the current internet society allows, and lack of awareness of murders without experience of death in people’s lives and so on, it has been long since we started to discuss the necessity of reestablishing actual relationships between ‘ourself’ and the environment around us. In order to understand the tendency of putting responsibility to others in this contemporary society, and respond to the problem directly, it is necessary to understand the consciousness of the people who the problems stem from. It is necessary to comprehend your body and soul well, to know your capacity with which you can do or cannot do, to establish your own way to solve problems, and to create human relationships matching your lifestyle. To aim to establish a society where people understand themselves well and understand each other, it is necessary to reconfirm how people relate to their environment by redefining their ‘body’ in any field. The approach to this action is defined as Embodiment Design.
