The 227th Exhibition The Tokyo Type Directors Club 2005 April 1(Fri.) - 25(Mon.),2005

Over the past more than 10 years, the Tokyo TDC Award has been very highly regarded. When I was asked to be a judge, I accepted without hesitation. As soon as the judging began, it was clear that the outstanding works struck a chord in everyone there. No matter how complicated a painting or a sculpture is or when or were it was made, the first impression of an outstanding work can immediately be accepted by viewers. That is the strength of what is real and the spirit that transcends cultural and language barriers. The works in front of us were also like that. The decisions were almost without exception unanimous. Andreas Müller and Noriko Usui's works stand out for their craft, professionalism; pragmatism and physical immediacy. Through poetic form or what I call "the word-less element," poetry or a resonant, arousing energy, background and intention flow. I hope TDC will continue to attract works that inspire and provoke discussion.
