“Tu connais” collective organised an exhibition about “TOYS”
concept. I decided to go to Tokyo, while I was in Taiwan, and find the
right Japanese “kidult” for my project. A kidult is an adult who
participates in youth culture and activities traditionally intended for
children. I was in the subway, sun was shinning in the train, and then,
he was there. I chated a little bit with him. He was so frustrated on
this day. Beeing an adult is really hard. Growing up make you feel like
you’re going to die. He wanted to fly away in toys, video games and
mangas. What he’s doing everyday. Running away. Surrounded by this
gaming city, he was trying to entertain the kid he will never be again.
Thank you Yoshitomo.
