It was a Gorishell that we used during class, but it started to occasionally chirp even after the class was over and Zoom was closed. Only the students could operate it, but it created a communication without knowing the subject or purpose.

“Alive is a website that allows an unspecified number of people to share the same space-time. When a user accesses the site and hovers the mouse cursor over the browser, the cursor appears in a room that is projected live. In other words, it is a website that allows users to become a mouse cursor and warp to a specific space, spend time alone, and communicate in real time with other people gathered there. Each user is represented as a mouse cursor, so its attributes are stripped away. There is no room for language, as all the user is allowed to do is change the X and Y coordinates, or movement.

The mouse cursor that transcends the Internet naturally overlaps with your own consciousness, and brings the difference of materials such as cloth and plastic, and spatial gaps such as corners and steps as “feel”. For example, when a mouse cursor other than your own approaches beyond a certain range, you will want to keep your distance, just as you would with a real body. As the mouse cursors communicate with each other, dance together, and stay in the same place, they gradually become closer and closer, and can connect and overlap with each other. In this way, “Alive” is a real space where we can forget our real bodies and only touch each other’s consciousness through the Internet.


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.

This research was supported by JST, COI, and JPMJCE1308.



On Japanese edition of WIRED, I produced a promotional article for HUAWEI. It’s about prototyping with the latest devices. With “HUAWEI P10 plus” is an interactive device that uses high-definition video. With “HUAWEI Media Pad M3 Lite 10”, applications can be used in a high quality The performance of the sound system is performed, and the performance of each is verified from a manufacturing perspective I did.



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.

Goldfish Feelings

A traveling exhibition where you can experience the view of nature through the humorous goldfish personified by Ukiyo-e artist Kuniyoshi Utagawa. It consists of a Ukiyo-e reproduction, Kuniyoshi’s goldfish face-fitting paper craft, and a VR where you can experience the gaze of a goldfish. Especially, this VR is different from “immersive feeling” that you enjoy by yourself by looking at the HMD. Using real-time synthesis of animated goldfish on the image of a 360-degree camera, it realize “Place created by VR”.
