Develop a plan for dissemination of my final project
The purpose of my final project is to combine open digital
design and local common resources.
I envision that my final project will function as the materials
for learning the ABCs of:
as well as the ABCs of digital fabrication, through making it.
- How to manage local common resources
- How to make something useful from scratch
- How to use it in various ways
Therefore, I have started researching how to record and share
the knowledge with others. Some examples are here:
How to make a straw rope in Shinjo, Okayama, Japan (Apr 21)
The process of making straw rope, by my grandmother
How to make a bamboo basket in Kandangan, Jawa, Indonesia (Mar
Drying bamboo poles under sunshine.

The method named “Knock-Knock Scope” consists of two parts:
shooting and viewing. Three rules for shooting include:
On the other hand, Hiroya Tanaka Laboratory has developed the
new type of table termed Fab Table that we can record and project
- Fixed point shooting using a tripod
- No zoom
- 1 minute shooting
I am trying to apply these ways to my final project, and we will
continue to research this theme after the Fab Academy 2014. In
this summer, we plan to participate in the exhibition "MEDIA/ART KITCHEN YAMAGUCHI: Open Call
Laboratory - An Exploration into Social Anthropology in Asia",
will be held from Jul 5 to Sep 28, as a joint research planning
with YCAM regional research lab. We will try to share how making
anything using bamboo in collaboration with others.
