Happy Soil Project

It starts from a simple idea: taking a child's drawing of a house, and then actually building it using branches. David Pollard first initiated the project in Birmingham, England, where the structure was brought into the city center to amazing effect. Wanting to spread the idea to other places in the world, the next stop was Tachikawa in Tokyo, where he would try to recreate the experiment, this time converting an unused -- yet yakuza-owned -- piece of land. With the help of architecture students -- who had to take time to "rediscover" the simple act of building -- the installation was a success. It later turned into an art installation, eventually included as part of the Tokujin Yoshioka-curated "Second Nature" exhibition at 21_21 Design Sight in Roppongi, which was also accompanied by a children's workshop. David Pollard and Tomonari Waku presented the project at Pecha Kucha Night in Tokyo (Vol. 58), where they also expanded on other similar DIY experiments and installations.

Salaryman Project

The Odyssey Project

"It seeks to demonstrate how artistic cooperation transcends class, racial and social barriers ... and serves as an alternative to incarceration and penalty."In "The Odyssey Project" from PechaKucha Santa Barbara Vol. 14, Ahmed Asi describes the collaborative theater process between youth from a juvenile detention facility in Santa Barbara county and undergraduate students from the University of California, Santa Barbara. Using the template of Homer's Odyssey, the participants gather on the university campus to explore the mythic elements in their lives in order to reconstruct the epic poem in their own voices. The project leads to a public performance at a local theater. Everyone on this creative journey is a hero or heroine. The project is designed to honor youth in identifying their heroic life mission and map a course of action. It employs theater arts as a strategy for inspiring life affirming choices.
