"into your universe" is an artistic project whose purpose is to fuse poetry, illustrations, and music into a single, harmonious experience. The team artists' intent in this endeavor is to blend these 3 elements into a unique journey of the senses in which, though each element has beauty and merit on its own, the whole will equal more than the sum of the parts. It is the hope of the creators that this unique "collaboration" of poetry, illustrations, and music will inspire you to reflect on the questions that shape your universe--questions common to all humanity no matter who or where they are--and not only enkindle in the listener/viewer/reader the desire to start seeking answers deep in their own universe, but also to help in the realization that where these answers take them is up to them. The path to the destination is decided by us ourselves. The project is ongoing.
The "into your universe" project began in 2006 and was presented in art galleries in Japan in Kyoto and Kyushu by the Project Destination Team of studioR. The exhibitions coincided with the release of a book/CD set of the illustrations, poetry and music of the project. The book and CD have now been rendered in digital format. In the LT version the illustrations and poetry are focused on and only one CD track appears.
