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.

Gorishell

In March of 2020, when the Corona disaster struck, the class I was supposed to teach as a part-time lecturer went entirely online. Since I could no longer share the real space with the students, I came up with the idea of creating a system that would allow everyone to directly interact with my space online. So, during the class, I set up a poster of a gorilla in the background of my Zoom, which could be controlled remotely via a web browser (the gorilla’s eyes would light up and the sound of a conch would ring out). This enabled communication that transcended space.

Wired Stairs

By dividing the Takasu Clinic’s sound logo and assigning each sound source to a pressure sensor. Every time you go up the stairs, you hear the words “Takasu” and “Clinic”. This is an attempt to illuminate the lives of those who experience it by suddenly evoking the everyday in the midst of the extraordinary.

Momotarou

Essentially, the human body is a biotope that supports life activities. However, human beings become unbearable and put a burden on their own bodies, destroying the ecosystems that compose themselves. This system is a mechanism to minimally experience the limits of the spirit and the body by applying a meaningless physical load to Karaoke, which is the release of the spirit. The pain of the thighs and the willingness to sing out highlight the meaninglessness of meaning.

Investigating for “Dozo-Dozo”

This is a project to turn the humorousness of the famous gag of comedy trio representing Japan into “wisdom that leads to production” by theorizing and creating works based on it. 22 works were implemented regardless of the media selection. In addition, it was adopted as a grant, and held solo exhibitions at Tokyo and Kyoto, and held a talk event with a science communicator to examine the differences between research and production.
