"Get out of your head and into your body, hell yeah."
A sentiment we love, and one we think you will too as you watch Shantell Martin's presentation about collaborations, done while the artist was based in Tokyo (she is currently based in NYC).
Natalie Cernecka, from Latvia, was trying to find a graphic designer in Tokyo. While searching, she found a small Latvian shop in Nakameguro and went to talk to the owner. She was so enthralled by the story she heard that she wanted to share it with the world via PechaKucha. While at a PechaKucha event, she met another Latvian. Through her new Latvian friend, she found a graphic designer from Ecuador who was able to help her.
"Imagine yourself, emerging off of a train in Gard du Nord and stepping forth into the streets of Paris. Where will you go?"

Ms. Ho started with the recent viral issue, 'PRAY FOR PARIS' and the terrorist attacks in Paris, then further exampled the movie 'The Assassin' directed by Mr. Hou Hsiao-hsien which appeared on the front pages of French newspapers. The TransAsia Airways plane crash appeared on children's newspapers. In fact, all kinds of Paris local media have an international perspective and are concerned about news around the world. She also described the provision of tents for refugees and school attendance for refugee children as examples of France's inclusive multi-ethnic tolerance. From a designer's perspective, she has observed that even though the competition among French design, construction, and other industries is fairly stiff, they are still quite respectful to professionals and value aesthetics; everyone was raised and developed on a culture of beauty and art.
藝術家何桂育從前陣子瘋傳的「PRAY FOR PARIS」與巴黎恐怖攻擊談起，分享巴黎當地各種媒體都相當具有國際觀，會關心世界各地的新聞，並以侯孝賢導演電影《聶隱娘》登上多家法國報紙頭版、復興航空空難登上兒童報紙為例；還有法國包容多元民族的特性，以都市中收容難民的帳棚、並提供難民學童有學校就學為例。並以設計師的角度，觀察到法國的設計、建築等產業競爭相當大，但相當尊重專業與注重美感，每個人都從小就進行美感、藝術與文化的培養。
"We were documenting Tokyo a lot, but even though we might draw Tokyo tower three times, because of our different background and where we come from, there will be three different outcomes which we thought was really interesting."

The Tokyoiter is willing to present the talent of artists and the wonderful and inspiring city of Tokyo to a larger audience.
