I’m glad you are there.

The alien life forms that appear in The Sirens of Titan, a novel by Kurt Vonnegut, may give us a clue to keeping a good relationship with someone. The primitive life forms called harmoniums can produce only two messages, “Here I am,” and “So glad you are.” When one says, “Here I am,” the other automatically responds, “So glad you are.” This simple exchange by recognizing the existence of each other and sharing the joy is indispensable for human beings, too. One thing that differentiates human beings from harmoniums is that humans use numerous combinations of various feelings and communicating those feelings. In this exhibition, we introduce the rich and diverse expressions created through communication between “Me” and “You.”
