“We Have Decided Not to Die”: The Work of Arakawa and Madeline Gins with Momoyo Homma


In this exceptionally long format (eight pages) dedicated to the transcript of a conversation recorded in Tokyo on October 30, 2014 for The Funambulist’s podcast,
Momoyo Homma introduces us to the artistic, philosophical and architectural work of Shusaku Arakawa (1936-2010) and Madeline Gins (1941-2014). She is the director of the Arakawa + Gins Tokyo office located in the Reversible Destiny Lofts Mitaka — In Memory of Helen Keller, where we recorded this interview after a visit of the lofts by sixty enthusiastic high school students.
