Masaki Fujihata “E.Q.”
This event has ended.
In 1968, Tokyo Gallery hosted two exhibitions under the theme of sight: Tricks and Vision: Stolen Eyes, an exhibition that questioned the idea of visual perception, and Computer Art: Media Transformation through Electronics, an exhibition by the CTG (Computer Technique Group) that captured images using new forms of media. E.Q., an exhibition by a media art pioneer, revisits the relationship between images and visual perception. In engineering, ‘EQ’ is an abbreviation for ‘equalization’, and in the world of images, an equalizer is a device used to colorize images. However, the term ‘equalize’ originally referred to the act of balancing the left and right sides of a mathematical equation. It follows that ‘equalization’ can be used in a media technology context to refer to the act of correcting the distortions that arise when an image is converted into different media. In E.Q., images captured in real time by a high-definition camera are converted into sets of coordinates by a computer and projected onto a screen. The images projected are representations of the viewer’s body, but unlike a reflection in a physical mirror, these images, rendered in an unfixed, digital medium, are always transitory.
