In the second half of the 18th century British Navy ships ran aground near Okinawa . The kindness and help of the Ryukyuan (people from Okinawa) at that time is well recorded. The British called Ryukyu "Loochoo", and reported that they were deeply impressed by Ryukyuans' culture and hospitality. The culture of the Ryukyu Dynasty still has a significant effect on both Okinawan artists and designers.
In this exhibition the artists and designers, who are all, in some way, related and influenced by Okinawan culture and traditions, have created works that respond in very personal ways to their conceptual thinking about 'Time'.
