The project is inspired by a geography book published in Amsterdam in 1669, titled "Gedenkwaerdige Gezantschappen der Oost-Indische Maatschappy in ’t Vereenigde Nederland, aan de Kaisaren van Japan." This book, 456 pages of text with 71 engraved illustrations and 23 double-paged engravings folded in, comprehensively showcased Japanese people, culture and history and introduced to Western society. The series of works that, in some way or another, graft today, the world of 2016, to the Possible history that these Dutch book makers had once generated.
The first 4 chapters have been released and exhibited in 2016 and the 5th and/or later chapters will be shown in 2017.
