In the artist’s project “Walking with a 12-foot Piece of Wood,” the artist had walked around freely while carrying a 12 foot piece of wood, but this time, they were not able to receive permission to use the public roads. It seems that if you try to receive permission to walk with a 12 foot piece of wood, you’ll lose your freedom to walk where you wish. They ended up walking the premises of Tokyo Midtown, the only location they were allowed to walk. They couldn’t go out on public roads. Imagining the experience of a dog leashed in the garden, how would it feel to walk only on permitted grounds? (When you find the artist, you can start a conversation or walk along with them.)


Chiaki Yamamoto

Born 1995. Began the project “Walking with a 12-foot Piece of Wood” in 2016. The artwork itself is in the real-life experience and movement that stems from the errors and realities the artist runs into while walking with a 12-foot-long piece of lumber.
