mumei SIX is a physical collections of text scores from artists in response to haiku poems by Tatami Kikusha, who travelled widely for the remainder of her life. She had no home for herself in later life and lived day by day intensely with the daily encounters on the road, relying on the help of others and the whims of nature. The final collection of compositions are unique and thoughtful contributions that reflect on the relationships of sound, silence, and stillness within the poems.
