Member Spotlight: Rica Takashima, public art artist and author - Aliens from New York in Japan exhibition recap‏

Title of art show:
Aliens from New York
Nov. 6-20, 2010
12 stations and platforms of Tsugaru Railway in Aomori, northern Japan

Title of workshop:
The Sweets Train —Transformed with Candy!
Nov. 13            Special chartered train from Tugaru to Naksato
Nov. 16            Bishamon elementary school  

Visual artist Rica Takashima has created an interactive and cross-cultural exhibit along the route of the Tsugaru Railroad in Aomori, Japan. Appropriate for children and adults, the exhibit brings iconic New York experiences to the countryside of northern Japan. Rica’s plan was simple: create cardboard cutouts of the kinds of things New Yorkers see everywhere: the blue Greek coffee cups, the buildings, a hot dog vendor. But one of the things that makes New York City so amazing is the people. She therefore created human-size cardboard New Yorkers in all our diversity, and cut out a hole for the face, like old-timey tourist postcards, so that people visiting the railway exhibit could see their country from a slightly different perspective. A special workshop helped children draw their own New Yorkers who hailed from all over the world. Lastly, while a special train travelled a route between two stations so that everyone could see the length of the exhibit, Rica distributed exotic candies that she had gathered in New York, which had been imported from other countries. In the end, participants saw, created, and tasted little pieces of other cultures as they rode their Tsugaru railroad.

Rica invites you to explore this cultural exchange exhibition through pictures and stories on her website at
