1.In your opinion what is the role of a museum?

The role of a museum is more than what is happening inside the museum building. Besides exhibitions, the public should be inspired and engaged by the museum. Creativity should be encouraged by the role of museum.

2.What are your favorite museums in the world? Why?

I had many inspiring experience in different museums. As an artist the first thing I do when I travel is to visit museums. One of them is the 21st century Museum of Contemporary Art Kanazawa. The museum building is in a low circular shape. Audience can access from different entries.

When you walked through the museum you can see the transparency of the building, for instance 10 minutes fresh air in the snow. I remember that built my very first snowman there.
