This event has ended.

What has technological innovation, as exemplified by the Internet, brought about and what has been lost as a result? Such an awareness of these issues is at the root of Ida’s work. Ida has visualized the physicality of the post-Internet world, the changes in industry, and the world as perceived through smartphones and other devices, through sculptures made from the multitudinous images uploaded on the Internet, and video works in which she uses a large roll of paper as a tricycle wheel and rides around the city while throwing the paper out onto the ground. For the Tokyo Biennale, AR will be applied to specific letters and symbols found throughout Tokyo, resulting in an “exhibition” of works all over the city. You can take them home with you, or print them at home. You may see one just by pointing your phone at an Olympic symbol, or you may not see others until a few years later.
