Tomokazu Matsuyama is on the vanguard of a new wave of public artists redefining how art in public spaces can add value to communities. Matsuyama goes beyond questions of site specificity to also consider the specifics of how people functionally use a site, how they see themselves in relation to public environments, and how a work of public art can be relevant to all members of a multi-cultural society. In this insightful video essay from NHK World, Japan’s largest public media organization, Matsuyama leads viewers on a journey into some of his most notable projects and discusses his very personal approach to developing impactful and meaningful public artworks for our increasingly intercultural world.
