KOSUGE1-16 makes a big puppet with the motif of a painter drawing Hijiyama. Audience is able to move the puppet and make him draw a picture. She/he will also move swings placed in the exhibition space to make the painter puppet do a move and also to make animal puppets around him move. This installation creates an opportunity to communicate and collaborate among viewers through the experience to move a puppet together.
