When the EARTH feels Luxury
The sense of a new philosophy
Twentieth-century civilization was created based on a construct where science and technology were developed for us to control nature. But what we now need to do is use our instincts to reexamine our relationship with material things, and return to the fundamentals of satisfying our soul and emotions and of living together in harmony with the Earth.
How to connect with the Earth. The ties between people. Respecting diversity. A spirit of cherishing life.
How to approach the wishes, dreams, and desires we have.
The Japanese have long since known that "to live together with the Earth" and "to live as a part of this Earth" is true affluence and luxury. This approach to living can be described as a "philosophy." Taking this very philosophy, this project seeks to reconstruct the concept of luxury and spread word of it through the visual arts. Through this project, we aim to get across holistic sensibilities and values that simply cannot be taught through school education at present and which will make people aware of the boundless riches and luxuries around them every minute of every day. The people who will deliver this message are professionals active in a wide range of fields, including artists, educators, scientists, philosophers, and writers. We will join with them in our LUXUREARTH quest and form networks both over the Internet and in the physical world.
For people who are living in this new global era of the 21st century.
Please come and join us in this project.
