Love Bench Project

Following my time living in Berlin, my impressions and perceptions of Western society suggested that its population is more comfortable when expressing its sexual identity in public than Japanese society. My idea was to install special benches that have specially designated pictograms designed for the use heterosexual, gay and lesbian couples in public spaces. I was curious as to how people would use these benches.
