このコレクションに命を吹き込み、類まれなこの詩人の仕事を浮き彫りにするために、KYOTO Design Labでは2016年11月に英国王立芸術院[RCA]との共同ワークショップを実施しました。参加したのは10カ国の異なる文化的背景を持つデザイナーたちです。彼らは谷川俊太郎のコレクションを題材に取り上げ、メディア領域において観客と新たなコミュニケーションを図るための作品を制作しました。本展でその成果を展示いたします。

Shuntaro Tanikawa (born 1931) is one of the most widely read and highly regarded of Japanese living poets. What is less known about him is his passion for radios and radio engineering.
In 2010, he donated his extensive collection of vintage, mainly American radios to the Kyoto Institute of Technology (KIT), along with associated posters and publications. Apart from an exhibition in 2011, these remain in the library and archive of KIT. They have never had an interpretative work created for them individually or as a collection.
KYOTO D-Lab held a workshop in collaboration with the Royal College of Art (RCA) in November 2016 which aimed to bring the collection to life and underscore its significance to the work of this unique poet. The participants were designers of different cultural backgrounds from ten countries. They used the collection as the basis for their interpretative works in a range of media as a new way of communicating the richness of Tanikawa’s poetry. The refined results of that workshop form the core of this exhibition.
