Synergetic Circus
Buckminster Fuller's Sea of Intuition

Exhibition Catalogue

This is the catalogue for the Buckminster Fuller exhibition that was P3 art and environment's (initially P3 alternative museum) first exhibition in 1989. It aimed to recreate the intuition, philosophy, activities and inventions of the modern-day Leonardo da Vinci within the context of Japan in 1989. The exhibition was authorized by and received the support of the Buckminster Fuller Institute in Los Angeles.

The catalogue put a spotlight along the various angles of Fuller's intuition through numerous photographs and diagrams, detailed chronographs, and text from specialists in many of Fuller's disciplines. There was an interview with Fuller's close friend John Cage.

The authors who wrote for the catalogue include Takashi Serizawa, P3 director and translator of Fuller's works, including his best-known book Operating Manual For Spaceship Earth; Jaime Snyder, Fuller's grandson and former director of BFI; J. Baldwin, who worked closely with Fuller over a 30-year period; Sumet Jumsai, architect and author of Naga: Cultural Origins in Siam and the West Pacific and a close friend of Fuller, who was particularly interested in Southeast Asia.

Each of the authors wrote about Fuller's thought and action in relation to the historical and environmental backgrounds to comprehensively analyze Fuller's creative process.
