"Tokyo Fiber '09 Senseware" Exhibition
This event has ended.
Japan's artificial fibers are the new Senseware. Just as the material of stone inspired creativity in humans during the Stone Age and the medium of paper invited activity for expanding knowledge, such as printing, what sort of creativity will artificial fibers evolved of high technology motivate human beings to seek? Some fibers are as microscopic as a cell, some more pliant than rubber, and some as conducive as metal. This exhibition attempts to visualize spheres which the new Senseware beckons us to explore. Architects and designers engaged in various fields, automobile and high-tech appliance manufacturers, media artists, and a plant artist. How many possibilities will be convened in this endeavor? We are aiming to transcend "monozukuri" (making things) to a place where technology, material and ability intersect. Here, in the midst of this awakening sensibility, we hope you will touch a tangible future.
