OKAIKEN? WHAT WAS IT?
"A fictional nation combined with Japanese progress and the author's pragmatism."
Okaiken was the test bed for understanding the strata of living within a set parameters of Japanese living but with concepts that are not unique to Japanese culture itself. A close look to the urban/rural, social classes, transportation, recreation and family dynamics will be strictly observed. Through SimCity 4, urban planning strategies will be discussed, with flow, growth and development being the focus of the journal. Through immersive use of mixed medias, data and storytelling, a complete picture of Okaiken was formed.
READY TO EXPLORE?
The author continued to search for a balance between the struggles that he had with the previous journals. A moving story line was well-integrated with pictures showing the apex of Okaiken's journey.
This (also known as "The Middle Way") is a journal independent of union activities. Several updates were created for this journal, and it marked the time of breakthrough for the author.
