Goethe’s words on traveling

Japanese translation of Goethe's words

Goethe’s words on traveling “Man reist ja nicht, um anzukommen, sondern um zu reisen”, meaning that one does not travel to arrive, but to travel. I created this work for “Design Festa”, one of the major art & craft events in Tokyo. His phrase was translated into Japanese.

The reason why I chose Goethe’s words was because I had a chance to go to Frankfurt just before the exhibition. I visited Goethe’s birthplace GOETHE HOUSE there and became interested in his works.
