S P A C E | 一瞬と呼ばれる喫茶店

THIS WEEK IN S P A C E, we are sharing our unique co-created zine, ‘One Moment Cafe.’

Made with great attention to detail, because it’s set in Kyoto, and that city taught DK just what the aesthetics of caring about setting, placement, and exactitude can lead to.

Special thanks to artist Kan Tomizawa, whom I have been lucky enough to get to know these last three years in Phnom Penh, for the sort of art school-esque conversations that have led to our co-created piece. Some of his poetry and paper collage art features in S P A C E | Kyoto, ‘One Moment Cafe.’ We’ll have four copies of this to share in real life at the meetup, details of which I *just* posted to people who had checked, ‘I want to read stories!’ at the signup page for our 2019 news and updates.

It’s sixteen pages.

The story is set in Kyoto 1995, a time when DK had two semesters of college time to be there, learn the language, and of course wander aimlessly, and often, through the city. Almost always, DK had handy a Minolta X-375, and spare rolls of film. Accepting her proposal for a study of ‘Japanese Lines,’ the Japan Foundation had awarded DK two grants for photography. Several images from that collection are included in this zine, S P A C E | Kyoto, too, though with an update of the variety that those familiar with DK’s newer style will not be surprised to see. (Think vectors, lines, and sharpie art: think sparse, airy, and light on the eye.)
