A Life Stripe is a “pattern of life” made by replacing one’s everyday actions such as sleeping, dining, relaxing, and working, with 21 colors (selected based on research), and recording them along a 24-hour time axis. We have collected over 150,000 life records of both well-known and ordinary people of various careers, circumstances, genders, and age, as well as animals, and made Life Stripes based on them. We continue these Life Stripes to this day. In Japan, we held exhibitions in Traumatis space in Ebisu and Spiral Garden in Minami-Aoyama. Regarding overseas exhibitions, it is been three years that we display in Fuori Salone in Milan. Through this method of expression which was inspired by a friend’s withdrawal from society, we (SPREAD) have faith that “Living life creates a beautiful pattern” and that “looking back on the past helps to create a future”.
