This evening I went to the opening of the Japan Days 2009 in Oslo. Quite excited I got to meet with Ryo Yamada, Japanese artist and architect that have been working in Norway and who is now living in Sapporo. Ryo Yamada had created a Tea House installation made of reciclable matherials for this years Japan Days. He also gave a lecture presenting his art projects in Japan. During the Japan Days there will be held a tea ceremony inside the installation that will be on view until March 28.
