While elderly were weaving, the stories of their lives were shared, each woven line was like a lifeline, when elderly finished the weaving process, their life was materialized as a Work of Art.

People all over the world participated in the workshops intervening in the works of the elderly, intertwining affections, strengthening their ties, reaffirming the Spirit of the Olympics Rio de Janeiro 2016.

TURN represents the return of the Olympics to Japan in Tokyo 2020, and the symbolic return of these first immigrants to their Motherland.

More than the life of the elderly as a Work of Art, Affect Weaving is an artistic project about the value of life, no matter age or race, life is priceless.
