A personal diary found in the Okura Zarae provides us with a picture of Suzu’s past and present. The artist creates a mysterious story in a translucent glass shed. Unlike social media and blogs, this was real life in a small diary. Usually, the writer would be the only reader; this is an attempt to step in and extract an image of daily life that we may have forgotten.
