The goal of this collection, and the symposium on which it was based, was to explore the Australia-Japan relationship through objects of individual meaning. We hoped that expressing the depth and vibrancy of AustraliaJapan cultural interconnections through the concrete and the intimate, would allow us to emotionally as well as intellectually connect to the world that made the object, to think about the value-systems that give the object meaning, and to consider how that meaning has changed as the object moves through space, time and culture.
