Art House Project
Haisha (literally "dentist"), once the home and office of a local dentist, has been completely transformed by artist Shinro Ohtake into a sculptural/graphic work of art-or perhaps a kind of sculptural scrapbook with various elements-in any case, an art house combining an array of eclectic styles. Dreaming Tongue, the title of the artwork, represents the process of calling to mind a dream from the tastes and aromas of a morsel in one's mouth.

- Shinro Ohtake
- Born in Tokyo, 1955. Mr. Ohtake made an impressive debut in the early 1980s, representing a new style of painting in Japan. He has been active since then in Japan and overseas. His stance of constantly suggesting new value systems and struggling against a sense of closure in the art world has won enthusiastic support from people inside and outside of the art community.
