"A photograph carries a message from nature […] If I continue to trace lines in the city in due course, considerate people should appear and begin to draw new lines, […] lines fit to become rich metaphors equal to things in nature." [N. Hatakeyama]

For the month of October, we're welcoming one of Japan's leading photographers, NAOYA HATAKEYAMA, as inaugural artist/researcher/collaborator in residence at studios.  
During the A|R|C residency, Naoya Hatakeyama is exploring sites of (often failed) utopian architecture in and around London with Manu Luksch and Mukul Patel. His observations of these sites feed into Luksch & Patel's long-term artistic research project, FUNCTION CREEP, which examines and proposes experiments of sustainable living. The Open Studio is an opportunity to meet informally with the artists at studios. All (ages) welcome.
