Makiko Yamamoto works mainly with long-term projects. In these projects, she orchestrates encounters and communication between people, employing various media and social systems. The whole process is usually documented, and illuminates automatic behaviour, blindly-acted habit, common sense, and the way we relate to others and to the world. She humorously reveals potential and possibility in everyday life from folklore, cultural and social aspects. Her work turns everyday occurrences into something more distinctive.
