Single / 24th March 2023
Sauce! is the second single from Osaka EP, the third of four multimedia projects documenting experiences in Japanese cities.
The track highlights Osakan humour and their love of food, focusing specifically on unfussy sauce-soaked dishes like okonomiyaki and takoyaki. Osakans shed a tear for their wallets when they say, “eat yourself to ruin”.

Site Nonsite is a project researching and documenting a connection to place. The site is the source, a place rich with scattered information and experiences; the nonsite is the resulting document, a multimedia abstraction of that place. (These guiding thoughts are adapted from land artist Robert Smithson’s 1968 Theory of Non-Sites .)
