The practice of the Tea Ceremony is a study that involves physicality and is a process of succession of traditions passed down from generation to generation. In this theme, the space in the tea ceremony room where the teaching takes place is recorded in space and time so that the movements of the people and the arrangement of the utensils can be observed again from a free perspective.
Students can observe the teacher‘s behavior and movements as “ghosts” from a third-person perspective. For example, students can move to the position where the teacher is standing and observe the teacher’s gestures to see the relative position of the body and the tea utensils and compare the teacher‘s arrangement with their own. In addition, students can check their mastery of the manners through the teacher’s guidance during the practice and by observing and comparing at any time until they are satisfied with the results. Students can work on acquiring traditional manners based on information they cannot get from traditional practice methods. We aim to contribute to the passing down of culture by advancing the technology for constructing an environment that is free in time and space.
