In any case, I've not yet introduced Kato Emiko (加藤恵美子)'s art exhibit! But it's fitting to go into the history of the space, as Project-306, the group renting and preserving the space, is doing so out of respect for the former tenant (I don't remember her name - I'll try to write it down the next time I hear it!), the room & the building, and is as taken with the history of it as I am.

The photo above shows one of the group of photos laying on the floor that make up the exhibit - taken sitting on a windowsill in the room. I wasn't able to meet and talk with the artist, but I've spoken with another member of the Project-306 group several times about the concept of the group.
: On the subject of the Okuno Building - here are a couple of other posts of mine regarding that fascinating building:
