poster for Technoclasm Cyber Arts Japan - Ars Electronica 30 years for Art and Media Technology

This event has ended.

To mark the 30th anniversary of “Ars Electronica,” an international media art festival held in Linz, Austria, MOT will hold a special exhibition of creations from the fields of art, technology, science, and media art in Japan. Ars Electronica has close bonds with Japan because of the numerous Japanese artists who have taken part and received awards in the festival since its founding in 1979, including Isao Tomita, Ryuichi Sakamoto & Toshio Iwai, and Maywa Denki. Many of the creations such artists have produced for the festival will be featured in this exhibition. Through participation-oriented interactive works, workshops, and video showings, the exhibition will explore new possibilities for expression in science technology, society and art, including new hybrid territories such as space art.

坂本 龍一さんが過去の受賞イベントで「Information is obtained from living environment」と話されていたように、技術/アート/人をつなぐ人工現実感を身近に感じることができました。

The scale of the exhibits expands in the museum's atrium, which resembles a Terry Gilliam film set: a small silver blimp carries an aerial camera that affords an out-of-body experience; a tall chimney spurts bursts of paper snowflakes; and a giant transparent figure, suspended upside down, looms over everything.

小難しいことなんか考え始めたらだめで、この時代に生きていることを体感すればいいんだ。光るLEDや触るだけで鳴るボタン....メカニズムなんて分からなくていいからさ。

アートのスピードは産業のスピードに比べて圧倒的に遅い。
アートは産業に近づくことによってあっという間に食い尽くされ、陳腐になっていくのだ。
そういったいろいろなことを考えさせてくれるという点で、印象深い展示だった。
