This film is a collaboration between filmmaker/anthropologist Can Tamura (John Wells) and artist Murakami Satoshi in relation to Murakami's work "Living Migration." Murakami travels on foot carrying a house that he made from styrene foam in Busan, South Korea and later in Kanazawa, Japan. The first part filmed in South Korea focuses primarily on conveying Murakami's sensory experience of moving with and living in his small house through the use of a GoPro camera and microphones mounted inside. The second part filmed in Japan reveals more of both the local context and the context of his project as he unsuccessfully negotiates with the owners of Buddhist temples to allow him to sleep in his house on their land for one night. This film, through collaborative and sensory ethnographic methodologies, contributes to the conversation about the ways in which anthropologists and contemporary artists can share similar methods or concerns. "Living Migration" was added to the collection of the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa in February 2019.
