Marmalade ritual


Every year around this time, my friend's mother sends me a box full of Japanese Orange, called Amanatsu, from her mother's home in Tokushima. This means I get to enjoy making Marmalade every year, leaving everything else behind and just concentrating on this task. Quiet and repetitive work, yet somehow super relaxing. Every year, I am reminded that there is so much more important thing to do than typing computer, so called "work." After making Marmalade, I share it with my friends and families as a way to say "I am sorry for everything and thank you for everything!" Thank you Miki-family and your marmalade is on the way!

Here is BBC food programmes (respect to British) all about Marmalade.


Shadow work


Unless we take back the shadow work, and unless we acquire skills and methods full of creativity, beauty, and fun attached to the shadow work, revolution won't happen. That's why food related labor is so important for hanare, not in a restaurant business way but in a revolutional way, right Illich? We are pretty much aware that, by taking this task, we face the risk of fixing a gender role, and I have to admit that some people simply percieve our activity as female work (women cooking and serving food every Monday). But at this point, it's more urgent and vital for us to actually practice it and ask others to join, than to think about our whatever representation.

Space of Hope by David Harvey


Reading the last chapter of this book where Harvey talked about his vision for Utopia. 

Artist as a social activist= default

Social and Culture Center in Kyoto


What it means to make a social and culture center?
What are the definitions we going to make for  "social and culture center?"
Does making money hurt the the core of the center?
How do we build a economic base we can stand on?
What are the examples around the world from which we can learn?
What kind of working practice do we want to practice?
How do we practice participatory democracy through the center?
How do we contexurize our activity in the society where intellectual activity is completely lacking or out of touch with everyday life?
