Visiting Workshop in Yokohama|(re)DISCOVER YOKOHAMA SEASON3 “Look at the Crystal Ball”

What do you see in Yokohama? It is a trial to rediscover the image of city of Yokohama and time that is becoming invisible recently, by re-editing and re-constructing sub-cultural media such as film, literature, music, anime and manga, crossing space and time. SEASON 3’s subject, ’Look at the Crystal Ball’ is an approach to anticipate and overview the future of the city by searching for the reason why especially SCI- Fi films and other media have been taken place there.

Students, business-person, people who is interested in those media or Yokohama are all welcomed to join. The workshop is aiming at representation of Yokohama enjoying the process with our unique and art-based method, bringing your favorite works on Yokohama in your mind. Any creative skills and experiences are not necessary. Why don’t we share each one’s image on City of Yokohama to find out the things forgotten and the future together?
