Patching panels on Window2— the planes are giving definitions of the form and the feelings of it. Steel, stainless, perforated metal, fabric, paints and rust will add more personal touches. Getting more and more excited to see this is growing 💓. #publicsculpture #swingsculpture #metalsculpture #newyorkartist #sculpture #artist #publicart #artinpark #interacitiveart #ryetownpark #ryebeach #ryeartscenter #ryeartgallery #natsukitakauji #window2 #metalart #fabrication #patchwork

Filming day 3&4: went to Rye Town Park to stake for the base structure for #window2 with @bobclyatt art director / visited my NY family @kcharlap and a singer Sandy Stewart with their collection of my work. Many interviews at my studio and at my apt etc, I talked so much I don’t remember what I said...it was a lot of fun filming✨ Many thanks to the director Hori, the camera lady @kazyu_ and Yomiuri tv! #読売テレビ#グッと地球便 #アーティスト #もうすぐ放送 #インタビューされた #tvshows #yomiuritv #guttochikyubin #interview #publicsculpture #swingsculpture #metalsculpture #newyorkartist #sculpture #artist #publicart #artinpark #interacitiveart #ryeplayland #ryetownpark #ryebeach #ryeartscenter #ryeartgallery #natsukitakauji #window2

It’s funny and nostalgic to see these playful dolls from my teenage: avant-garde style Japanese Kokeshi and Barbie size dolls I tried woodcarving as a first time. I was not only into dolls but also into fashion design and making cloths at the time. They will show up as a part of my story in a tv show on air in November #読売テレビ #ものつくりたい #早く放送みたい #人形好き #懐かしい #itwasspecial #artistsmemoirs #iwannamakesomething #onlymydolls #tokyotony

Filming day 2 with a Japanese tv crew was at my studio while we are working on the swing chair, we installed it onto the shaft, and FINALLY swung on! The camera lady @kazyu_ said “the best smile of yours so far” I said “of course! I was waiting for this moment—“ as I swung... I’m glad my happiest moment in last 3 months was captured by the camera (as well as my frustrated moments as everyday has been😁) #読売テレビ #ニューヨーク #アーティスト #撮影日 #野外彫刻 #関西で #もうすぐ放送
