Day155,156&157: JAPAN

Sorry for not renewaling so long time...
I was crazy about my course of Graphic design.

After the last class,we went to drink with my class mates.
What a strong drinker british people are...
Next pub,next pub,next pub,and bar....
But it was really good night.

And I met one japanese girl in this course.
She's really creative person and has quite good idea toward Japan.
We talked about Japan.

So I'll tell you my thinking toward Japan today.
If you my idea make you angry and you have another idea,I'm sorry and pleas tell me.
We can discuss about it.

I think Japan is the country which is made by fake things.
In Japan,we can get evry information about all over the world.
Fashion,design,politics..anything!!
Japanese people know many things.That's true.
But they just know.That's all.They don't have actual experience.
They don't try to make those information their own experience.
I know not everyone like that.But so many Japanese like that.
Those "fake experiences" make the cage around Japan.
Moreover Japan is the quite strong japanese society,probably it's really hard for foreign people to live in Japan.
So we tend to miss this cage around us.
For creative things,such kind of cage is the biggest enemy.
We have to notice this cage and blow it up.
Othewise I cannot see the world,even Japan.

Many European people say Japan is great,very creative country.
But if I ask them "Do you know some Japanese graphic designer?"
Their answer is "No,I don't know.But Japan is still good."
Why do they regard Japan as a creative?
What do they see?
Probably they see Edo-era or old good Japan.
These things are not made by us but people who are already dead.

What is there in Japan now?

I have no idea.
We have to start creat our Japanese creative things from now on.
Just use SUMI or WAGARA,it's not like that.
More deep,emotional and conceptual thing...

I have to study more about Japan.
There're so many things that I hate.
But I have to study about such bull-shit things,too.
Probably I can get something from them.
"The most national thing's gonna be the most international thing"
This is someone's words.
That's true.

I have to know much much more about Japan.

I agree with you.
Japanese people are tend to just follow the pretty foreign things,although they don't know their true meaning.
It's empty.
So I noticed last time it's not the work for me to imitate foreign things,I have to create them with including Japanese factors.
 
Anyway,you go back to Japan in the last of May??

熱い(笑)
これは私の意見で、聞き流しても討論でも、正面から受けて立つから言って(笑)
本物は自分の中にあるはずだ。オリジナルってやつ。場所など関係はない。日本だろうが何だろうが。自身がオリジナルでなければ。
私たちは日本人であり、少なからず思考回路も文化も、拭えないシミのようなものだろう。
では、その上に立って見える景色とはなんなのか。見える景色は自分の目を介して見ている訳で。
それがオリジナルだ。
日本人だ、それでいい。だから出来る事もある。
fakeかもしれない、それでいい。
自分はそこで何を感じ、避難する訳でもなくただ、したたかに、受け入れて認めて壊せばいい。
そう思うよ。

ごめん、全部読んだけど、全然共感できんかった。。。

ちょっと聞きたいっちゃけど、自分こそ日本の何を見てそんなこと思うとかいな??


あと、どんな社会であっても、よそから入ってくると多少の住みにくさは感じるっしょ。
けど、こないだおれの知り合いの中国人の人と話したら、日本は住みやすいって言いよったよ^^;

で、ヨーロッパの人が日本に良いイメージなのも、おれらが欧米に持っとるイメージと近い部分があるっちゃないかなー。
おれは「アメリカ=自由の国」ってイメージあるけど、アメリカが自由な国かどうかは何も知らんww


まぁーここじゃ全然語りきれんけん、日本帰って来たらまたサシ飲み行きましょー☆★おれ夏は福岡帰るけん夏かな♪


最後の方のI have no idea以降のことが実践できたらすばらしいね(^_^)vがんば★

Thank you for commenting.
I agree with you.
Recently I've been feeling that I have to know things that I don't like first.
After knowing that,I can break them with my originality or creativity.
We have to discuss about it!!

Tsutsu>
Thank you for commenting!
Why do I have such idea?
Because I think Japanese have less active attitude toward life,it's like ambitious.
Of courese not everyone.
Fortunately,I have many friends who are ambitious.Of course you're one of them.

In some part,you're true.
Probably I don't know about Japan,either.
But before I came here,I didn't notice this fact.
The stay in London gave me the chance to think and learn about Japan.
I feel it was right to decide to come here.

It's really difficult to discuss at blog.
I want to discuss directly.
If we do so,probably you will agree with me bit more.。

明日来るんだよねえ?何だか出席人数少なくて・・・。

今日ベルギーから帰ってきたよ。英語の看板がありがたいとケイシが前言っていた感覚、久し振りに味わった。

日本の良さも悪さも、とにかく日本の外からでないと分からないというのは同感。あと、日本人は頭がいいけど経験が足りてい無いっていうのも。つべこべ言ってないで外に出ろと。

最近の若い人達・・・って言うか同年代の人達だけど、日本人特有の頭の良さを自ら殺しに走っている様な気がするのは俺だけ?遊ぶのもいいけどさ、中身を感じられない。

ん〜と、そうゆう返答やなくて、おれが聞きたいのは判断材料は何なのかっていうことでした。。。。
「最近の日本人は〜〜」と語れる理由。。

ん、けどここで話してもラチあかんっぽいけん、やっぱ会って話すのが一番やね♪

てかその前に再会を楽しみにしとるけんね〜。それまでちゃんと生きとってよ(笑)

Hi KC! Long time no see... well it was me not checking your blog up lately.
However I am glad that you sound like that you're enjoying your course and all sounds exciting!!
I am looking forward to hearing your complete reveiw on the course when you finish it.
I am sure that you will be a creative designer ever I know of after this experience.
Ummm, serious and interesting view on Japan you have. Well I have some curious experiences of re-thinking of Japan, my home country.
I was having a harmless conversation with my foreign friends about the ideas about 'home'. Then it kind of hit me, and made me think 'what the hell does my country represent or make its impression towards the rest of the world? '
I couldn't think any spontaneous answers. I think that we are lucky in away that we have such an important opportunity to come to think of ideas like this. Perhaps becasue we could look into Japan with the perspective from outside Japan.

Anyway good luck to the rest of your course,mate.
頑張ってね。
