It was quite exciting performance for me and of course for the audience. I did three performances here. 1 wrote 12 characters to a long paper. I also did 8 characters to four pieces of paper. Each paper had 2 characters. I demonstrated 1 more character to the biggest paper in the last.

People expected to see someone sitting at a table and writing little characters, but when Ren came to the Art Gallery he covered the whole floor in paper! He wore Japanese traditional dress and held a big brush. What he did was almost like a dance. It was a very dynamic performance with a stong impact.
