LIFE WOULDN'T BE THE SAME WITHOUT SAFE SEA (03:20)

安全な海なしに私たちの生活はありえません。シンガポール海軍ポスターより


MILITARY BASE ISLAND (04:31)

in collaboration with Sean Snyder
沖縄の米軍用地の売買は、通常の不動産取引とは全く異なっている。市場価格は日本政府から支払われる土地の借地料と比例しており土地それ自体の状態や広さを考慮したものではない。返還される可能性の少ない米軍施設の土地の価格はより高額で取引されている。
沖縄では本島の約10%が米軍基地として使用されていて1972年沖縄返還以降、日本政府が地主に借地料を支払ってこれらの土地を米軍に貸与、軍用地の所有は政府に保証された有利な投機対象となっている。

ブルーベリーランド (12:38)

公共住宅 ストックホルム (03:32)

in collaboration with Mike Bode

スウェーデンの首都ストックホルム近郊の公共住宅は50-70年代を通じて、急増する労働者の居住区として建設。現在、スウェーデン人が去ったこれらの地区にはアフリカや中東からの難民からなる様々な背景を持つ移民のコミュニティが出来上がっている。

シンガポールでは国民の85%が政府の運営管理する公共住宅で暮らしている。ランドタイトルというシステムに基づいた法律で部屋の所有権は100年間に限定されている。


2. いちょう団地  ICHO DANCHI  (02:30)

東京郊外、米軍厚木飛行場に隣接する公団住宅。80年代、ヴェトナム戦争に続くラオス、カンボジア等での紛争からのインドシナ難民のための定住促進センターが近くに開設されたため、彼等の多くがこの住宅地に定住。難民の多くがそれぞれ違う国籍であっても中国系であったこともあり、帰国した中国残留孤児なども中国語の話せるコミュニティを求めて移住してきた。その後は様々な国籍を持つ移民の居住区となり現在では5から6カ国語の異なる言語を話すコミュニティが団地内に共存している。

三里塚 SANRIZUKA 2011(05:28)

in collaboration with Keiichi Miyagawa
成田市三里塚周辺のいくつかの農村は新東京国際空港建設時、日本政府によって消滅させられている。60-70年代を通じ長期に亘って地元農民と 過激派学生等による反対運動が繰り広げられ、現在も一部、空港用地の権利をめぐる裁判が係争中、空港内では今も3軒の農家が経営され滑走路の拡張を止めている。また住宅地に囲まれ開港時からの騒音問題によって空港の運航は日中に限定されている。成田空港建設は国の開発計画としては失策と見られており、首都・東京のための国際空港という当初の役割も羽田の国際便就航化とともにその一部を移行されつつある。
