Title:Limited Words and Capture of Toilet (Okinawa, Japan)
Material:video (single channel, Xmin)
Year:2013
The work documents the process of finding the word "May I clean your toilet?" in Okinawa in their original language (Ryukyuan). Even the local people do not use Ryukyuan anymore, and they ask elderlies if s/he knows the word. In the end, I failed to clean toilet but captured the reality of Japan's assimilation policy against Okinawa.
