This was a collaborative work done with Kenjiro Okazaki and Yoshinori Tsuda for the “Of the Human Condition” exhibition held at Spiral/Wacoal Art Center in Tokyo, Feb. 1994. The piece addresses human rights through the story of Choei Takano, a late Edo-period physician who penned the first known Japanese text arguing that human rights should be upheld. He was ultimately sentenced to death for his views. His last residence was on the site where the Spiral building now stands, and many people have reported seeing his ghost inside that building. Our work took the form of a printed pamphlet and accompanying texts in which his ghost speaks.
