Masahiko Sato "The Definition of Self"

poster for Masahiko Sato "The Definition of Self"

This event has ended.

In recent years, a number of individual-identifying technologies and measures have been developed rapidly, and are now used in a variety of contexts in our day-to-day life, to prevent crimes and also to help us lead a more comfortable life. This, in turn, means that we are heading into a society where our identities, such as our fingerprints and veins, have their own wings, divorced from their original owners, i.e., ourselves.

This exhibition will introduce new pieces that leverage interactive devices and cutting-edge technologies, as well as existing pieces that reveal something intrinsic about ourselves. Through a number of hands-on exhibits, a blend of scientific technologies and art works by designers and artists from both Japan and overseas, the exhibition aims to create an opportunity for the visitors to identify their undeniable “self.”

非常にいい展覧会ですね。
センサーの出来はイマイチだけど、体験とフィードバックの仕組みがうまく機能していて、客であることを忘れて、主体的に関わった感覚になるし、作者の思考を追体験できます。
誰もがもつ創造力をかき立ててくれる数々の仕組みは芸術家と一般人の垣根を崩してくれる気がします。

キーワードは「属性」。こういった現代性があって切れ味鋭いテーマ設定は、純粋なアートではなかなかできないんではないかなあ。

「金魚が先か、自分が先か」はちょっとどきりとしました。日頃、自分をずいぶん見過ごしているんだなあと。混雑する展示が多かったので、もっと早い時間帯に行けば良かったなあ。
