openSE

With the advent of the Corona disaster, online communication such as video calling and voice SNS has become more active. In such a situation, communication in online classes and talk delivery is divided into a speaker and a listener, and the interaction between the two is mainly through text such as chat. This work was created to increase the amount of traffic that the listener can interfere with the speaker under these circumstances, and to realize communication that is neither 0 nor 100.
Specifically, I built a web application that allows listeners to send their reactions and arbitrary words, and share these sound sources output from the speaker’s side with everyone through microphones and mixers. By constructing the input and output in a web browser, there is no need to install any kind of application, which is a feature that enhances accessibility.
In fact, when the application was introduced to university lectures, various talk transmissions, online workshops, etc., the users felt as if they were creating the distribution space together. This is thought to be a sense of presence created by the rapid stimulation of voice, a medium that differs from visual information processing such as language and stamps. In addition, voice has a high degree of intervention in the space and the speaker is forced to react, which creates a sense of satisfaction in the listener and encourages further interaction. Such characteristics have led to a reversal of the initiative from the broadcaster to the listener in the introduction of radio broadcasting.
Unlike “assertions” using symbols, such as chat and stamps, “openSE” provides “reactions” using voice, creating a space of mutual influence. In other words, it is a framework that creates a “collaborative experience” in virtual spaces.

Don’t Mind About the Title

Since art has become a “culture”, works of art need titles to be mentioned. The “language” used in the titles of artworks is a high-resolution tool that narrows down the room for interpretation, and therefore contradicts the perspective of modern aesthetics, which endorses the sensory perception of the viewer. In this work, the “right to name” is transferred from the artist to the viewer. The interpretations of each viewer, which multiply and are shared at will, become the official title of the work each time. In this way, the artist and the viewer are placed on the same layer, and the viewer interacts with each other, so that everyone who commits to the work becomes complicit. In contrast to the recent search for beauty, which requires a linguistic space because it is “cultured,” by giving plasticity to the title, we continue to open up “free interpretation.

Street Kamishibai Archives

Paper Slide Show is known as Kamishibai abroad because of its unique Japanese culture. Such Kamishibai paintings are hand-painted one-of-a-kind, and most of them have unknown rights. So secondary use is difficult. Meanwhile, I distributed the work of Koji Kata, known for his “Golden Bat”, free of charge as a “useful archive” where anyone can play Kamishibai anytime with an iPad.

Instant Kamishibai

A web application dedicated to an improvised Street Kamishibai that acquires images of children’s photos taken on the spot and images that the audience likes by using the image search API, and inserts them into templates to flexibly add traditional narratives. The concept was “a device that allows everyone to enjoy personal things using the Internet.” The image display algorithm was randomized to incorporate happenings.
