This curatorial project is a collection of materials for a fictional museum exhibit focusing on the work of Japanese graphic and interactive designer, Kenya Hara. Not only is he the personification of Japanese design and theory, much of his work is interdisciplinary. He works with a variety of collaborators, creating work that varies from print based material to product designs. I chose to focus on this particular characteristic of his work in my project. The catalog features several projects under many genres of design. It includes some articles written about Hara to help the reader further understand who he is as a person.  The iphone app is an archive of Hara’s work, interviews, and videos. Users can bookmark and comment on these articles for their convenience.
