Monkey Fitness

This work constructs a “controllable space-time” that is different from the world we live in, as a phenomenon that occurs in the viewer’s perception. The basis of the work is a technology called “spatial screen. This technology uses a special rotating object and a projector to achieve stereoscopic vision with the naked eye without limiting the viewing range, inexpensively and simply. The author invented the projection principle of the “spatial screen” and has been improving it with his colleagues who specialize in stereolithography and metal processing. Specifically, the 3D model is cut into a circle toward the back and projected onto a special structure at a speed that the viewer’s eyes cannot keep up with, thereby creating a three-dimensional light. A pseudo-space-time is created by giving further temporal changes to the three-dimensional structure thus created. The monkeys dancing in space-time as a visual phenomenon ask questions such as what is time, what is space, what is mass for a three-dimensional object, what does it mean to “see”, what is the world as we perceive it, and what is existence. In addition, due to the fact that it does not limit the viewing area, it will realize the unprecedented activity of “surrounding the image with others and observing it.

Don’t Mind About the Title

An installation in which the title of the caption attached next to the drawing changes from time to time. One day, I casually drew a face. The face looked various. Therefore, I prepared a site where I could post what it looked like, and asked my acquaintances and friends to write it down. Then, it turned out that there are various interpretations. When I wanted to respect that interpretation, I came up with this work. Experiencers can also enter their own titles through the website and share them with the people there. An attempt to create a shared place by utilizing captions, which are semi-public.

Zoom in Face

A camera on the monitor zooms in recognized face with a sound effect, forcing the user to stereotyped camera work. The aim was to create a situation where different backgrounds of the presenters who were present at that place had to be mixed through a loosely shared context. At the same time, the compulsory mechanism of zooming in on one’s face is the gaze of someone’s attention and unconditionally affirms the life of the experiencer.

Yoshiharu Suzuki

An attempt to re-ignite the subtle lives of the images by montage the images on portraits that have been discarded and animation, mediate them, and create stories in the viewer. As an approach different from the “function” that computer-based expressions are good at, like inputting A and returning B, the process was documented by bringing the expression into the memory of the portrait’s man and changing its circuit.

Let’s work at the BABEL

Interactive installation created at the “Study of BABEL” exhibition hosted by Tokyo University of the Arts, which are related projects of the Brugel’s “Tower of Babel” exhibition. When the face is photographed with a dedicated iPads installed in the venue, the face is reflected in the image of people working inside the 3.4-meter tower. Through creating an activity to look for myself, I aimed for the “feeling” of the elaborate and magnificent charm of Bruegel’s “Tower of Babel”.
