Naturality -> Growth

Person in Charge of the Project : Takashi IbaAt Iba Laboratory, we focus on the process in which individuals use their everyday creativity to solve existing problems and consequently create a future that is better for them. This process is one that allows the individuals themselves to grow, as "creating is understanding", and "creating is learning". In this exhibit, we will introduce the concept of "Natural Creativity" that every person has, and will show examples of "Creative Learning" that fosters such creativity.

Chaos -> Generation

Person in Charge of the Project : Takashi IbaAt Iba Laboratory, we value the approach of generating new ideas from chaotic situations. That is, to search for new associations and possibilities from a diverse/ambiguous chaotic state, and generate new and meaningful things. A person who plays a key role in creating those situations, who enables such a process to occur, is what we call, a "Generator". In this exhibit, we present a definition of the "Generator", a role that generates creativity from within and from others, and will also introduce a new method of understanding and fostering chaotic diversity, called the "Style Language".

System -> Wholeness

Person in Charge of the Project : Takashi IbaA phenomenon that occurs once unintentionally is unlikely to occur again, let alone exist as one organized unit. Therefore, in order to recreate a certain good activity/situation in a different context, it is necessary to have some sort of system or method to make that possible. At the Iba Laboratory, we aim to get an understanding of the underlying "system" of good activities, and generate one "wholeness" to capture it, through approaches such as systems theory and pattern language. In this exhibit, we will introduce some concepts from systems theory as well as Iba Laboratory's pattern language projects.
