Maki Aizawa

Maki Aizawa is a multifaceted artist and producer with a passion for Japan, her native land. She grew up in Sendai, in the north of Japan, and from her earliest years was immersed in the traditions of Japanese arts and culture. Her parents ran a kimono-making school and she remembers a childhood with hundreds of “aunties” –- the students who were living with them during their five-year apprenticeships to become licensed. It was only natural that Maki also studied many of the other time-honored Japanese expressive arts, including ikebana (floral design), shodo (calligraphy), and the koto (traditional stringed musical instrument).

FOR-SITE Foundation

The FOR-SITE Foundation is dedicated to the idea that art can inspire fresh thinking and important dialogue about our natural and cultural environment. Through exhibitions, commissions, artist residencies, and education programs, FOR-SITE supports the creation and presentation of innovative art about place. Recent high profile projects include Andy Goldsworthy in the Presidio and International Orange at Fort Point. The site was a team collaboration with Ari Salomon leading development. The connection between current and past projects and the display of “parent” and “child” projects required a deep investigation and reworking of how the organization presents its core projects.

This project was coordinated with an update to their branding and designed to accomodate a change of focus of the organization as it grew into it’s second decade. Visit live...
