On the other hand, Hiroya Tanaka Laboratory has developed the new type of table termed Fab Table that we can record and project handworks.

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.
