In this project, PAN- PROJECTS make use of printed matter as a building material. The printed matter is related to the cancellation and postponement of events and other activities due to the coronavirus crisis. For the most part, it is PR information issued by public agencies and commercial facilities in the Tokyo metropolitan area. The work, consisting of a large quantity of accumulated printed matter serves both as a means of communicating facts and preserving traces. It was intended to confirm the urban memory of the coronavirus crisis while urging viewers to reexamine their present place.
