"Thank you so much for the 3 day workshop! Everything was very precious and great for me!
I was so happy when I found how much I love to create something and share many and various ideas with everyone. Also, I’m really interested in the philosophy of this workshop. For example, 'Life exists at the edge of order and chaos' is an important thought in complexity science too. I feel the strong connection between science and this activity."
