Oto No Hana Vol. 5

Sarah and Jamie have been doing these amazing parties in Takaoka called "Oto No Hana" (or "Flower Sound") for the past two years. Last night was the final installment of the series, because they're both moving back to the States soon! :(

The theme for Vol. 5 was "...And There We Were." That's a phrase Jamie often uses to reflect on the current situation. In this context, it refers to those who are leaving Japan in a month's time. The party took place in an art gallery in Toyama City called MAU. The organisers of this event -- Mariette, Owen, Robert, Jamie, and Finn -- showcased their artwork. Some of the pieces included photographs, paintings, drawings, video, and music. There was also a form of performance art in the public art project, which included a wall and tools to create something random and fun. As well, several locally-famous DJs came out to the event and we got our groove on.

Good times! Thanks guys for putting it on!!
