The five human senses are very good and worthy of trust. This book offers a glimpse into the trajectory of communication using all the senses by the creator and receiver. The "material board," which is synonymous with his work, was created by compiling inspirational materials into a board with the purpose of communicating a concept, and is intuitive, easy to understand, and beautiful. He says, "It is important to gain knowledge by reading and watching numerous books, but it is more important to experience the real thing first hand, with your hands, with your eyes, and with your body." The most important thing for a designer is to accumulate experiences such as seeing and hearing. The most important thing for a designer is to accumulate experiences, such as seeing and listening, and to give shape to ideas that come from the images left by the many experiences he or she has had. These words have a great influence on FROME's concept "From Experience. アースダイバー (Earth diver)中沢新一 (Shinichi Nakazawa) Modern Tokyo still continues to be directly influenced by the thinking of the Jomon, who were sensitive to the workings of spiritual forces in the changing topography." Perhaps it could be said that the way the city is still being influenced by the Jomon people's thinking, or perhaps it could be said that the Jomon people's thinking is the basis for our modern thinking, which is why we continue to protect the city's way of being. The same sense of being that has remained unchanged for thousands of years lives on today. This book contains elements of all kinds of studies, including anthropology, folklore, sociology, and philosophy, and it will give you an awareness of the way you look at things such as the city, the land, and culture. 創−つくる 日本人のくらし (Create - Life of Japanese)秋岡芳夫 (Yoshio Akioka) Yoshio Akioka called himself a "designer who stood still. Yoshio Akioka calls for a return from "consumption" to "creation" for those of us who have lost the technology of daily life and forgotten the joy of creation. He said, "I cannot endure a life of just wearing clothes, eating, and sleeping. I want to live in a house with a wooden floor and an earthen floor, making things like human beings. We should return to the homo faber "craftsman" way of life dreamed of by the Bauhaus students, and if possible, to a community with life skills like the Japanese villages that used to make and use their own daily utensils. I want to encourage people to live a crafted life. My original experience of making things was when I was a child and my grandfather gave me a Higo-mamori to make crafts with. The joy I gained from this experience is at the core of my current production activities. Making is living and living is making. This book reminds us of the importance of developing our senses, refining our skills, and preparing our environment so that we can give form to the ideas that come to us in our daily lives.
