poster for Kazuhiko Hachiya "OpenSky 2.0”

This event has ended.

NTT InterCommunication Center will host Kazuhiko Hachiya's "OpenSky 2.0" exhibition as the 2nd installation of their renewal project.

"OpenSky" started in 2003 as a project "for making your own flight equipment", i.e. to ultimately create a one-man personal jet glider as a personal project (many of which are still underway). After planning the basic structure of the glider and experimenting with models (phase 1), experimenting with models large enough to fit a person at low heights (phase 2), the plan is to implant a jet engine and undergo a manned experiment (phase 3).

This exhibition focuses on the "OpenSky" project in its entirety, displaying the concept, footage of past experiments, model gliders, playing sound recordings of the flight simulator and jet engine etc, along with presentations that utilize the internet.

The "OpenSky" project attempts to show that our 'dreams' of flying can be made possible precisely because it is an individual, personal project rather than that of a group. Through this, we hope that your dreams of flying will be set free.

八谷和彦「OpenSky 2.0」

渋谷区初台・NTTインターコミュニケーション・センター[ICC]にて3月11日まで行なわれた本展は、メディア・アーティスト八谷和彦による「OpenSky」プロジェクトのこれまでの活動を概観するものである。2003年からはじまった「OpenSky」は、「個人的に飛行装置を作ってみる」ことをめざし、「模型による検証」「実機制作」「テストフライト」の3つのフェーズを経て、今展に至った。

「空を飛ぶ」という夢見がちな思いを、ストレートに実現させようとする企画に惹かれて見に行きました。
展示会場は、プロジェクトがじっくり詰まっているし、作成された八谷氏の思いが溢れているし、「見せ物」としてきちんと一つの展覧会になっています。

飛行装置を作る生の過程が感じられるという点で貴重だし、そこがこの展示の面白さでもあります。
ボリュームはありませんが他にはない展示です。
見る人のためにいろいろな工夫がなされています。
