KYOTO’s Visible and Invisible Structure

This sound and visual communication design workshop, in collaboration with a sound artist Yuri Suzuki from the Royal College of Art, centred on the theme of Kyoto’s historic underlying city plan. Five paired sound and visual portraits and a commissioned 2D portrait by the visually impaired artists Takayuki Mitsushima, will introduce you to Kyoto’s visible and invisible structures.
