The enormous archives resources on Kazuo & Yoshito Ohno have been classified to publish books and dvds/videos.
The classification process have begun in 1995. The first outcome "Workshop Words," published in 1997 by Film Art Sha, basesd on the sound materials. Out of photo materials "Food for the Soul" was published in 1999 by Film Art Sha. In 2001 "Beauty and Strength (NHK software)" appeared in the result of compiling visual images.
Now many resources have been translated into English and the process is still on. As one of the results, in 2004 "Workshop Words" and "Food for the Soul" was compiled into one book "Kazuo Ohno's World" in English by Wesleyan University Press. More will be published based on the archives resources in the future.
