Tajima Momen (田島木綿) Exhibit at Ginza OB-Project Room-306 (銀座奧野ビル 306号室 プロジェクト)

At "Project Ginza Okuno Building, Room-306" (銀座奥野ビル306号室プロジェクト) the current exhibition (2010/04/12-24) honoring the room and the building is by Tajima Momen (田島木綿) and is entitled "A Room of Stories" (ひと部屋小説 - Hito Heya Shosetsu).  Amazingly, in addition to the exhibit, the new chairs and bench seat were designed and built by the artist!

The seats and bench (like a backless sofa) in the room make it easy to peruse the many stories placed in the windowsills (in A6-sized folders), while leisurely taking in the ambiance of the room.

My Japanese reading is not exactly speedy, so I wasn't able to take in all the details of the stories on my first visit, but I'm planning to go back and have a closer look.  As always, the room tells its own stories if you use your perceptive abilities well.
