Media Ambition Tokyo 2018
This event has ended.
2018 will be the sixth consecutive year of Media Ambition Tokyo (MAT), an event showcasing top-notch technological culture that takes an experimental approach to urban implementation. Here you can see edgy artwork, as well as video, music, live performances, and talk shows hosted at venues situated in Roppongi, as well as satellite locations in Harajuku, Daikanyama, Ginza, Iidabashi, Suidobashi, Odaiba, Marunouchi and other areas. MAT continues to grow as spreads organically throughout the city, offering varied programs when innovators and companies active in various fields both in Japan and overseas come together to participate in events.
With 2020 and beyond in mind, the event will address the potential of technology in creating Tokyo’s future, not omitting the largely evolving systematic designs of transportation, communication and information. MAT aims to substantiate the reformative movement in technology art through experimental validations unbound by genre or category.
This year’s event brings together leading artists on the media art scene, including Rhizomatiks, who are known for blending advanced technology with design, and TeamLab, which develops works beyond the boundaries of art and entertainment, as well as individuals such as Yoichi Ochiai, who explores digital nature in his art and research, and other cutting-edge artists.
