Thank you for your interest and visit

Just wanted to say a thank you from heart for those who got interest in the Flipbook Show and paid a visit. The show was a big success, which brought both the visitors and us great joy and giggles! The show team (my artist friends + myself, when I am a crew) is willing to visit any town in the world (as long as the budget allows … shhh) to tell and show the world that flipbooks are fun. If you wish the show to come to your town or if you wish to join the show as one of the artists, please drop me an email.

O – [am]

O – [am] is a visual-musical toy application on the computer. It weaves a tapestry on the screen with colourful threads, according to your playing music with the keyboard, where sound-key map is hidden. Good for kids and any grown-ups with curious minds.

O – [am] はコンピュータ上の絵と音のおもちゃ。どの音がどのキーから出るのかわからないキーボードから奏でる音に応じて、織り込まれる糸が色とりどりのタペストリーを作り上げます。

Lemniscape

Lemniscape, which name means ‘infinite landscape’, is a live movie installation with computational animation that runs without an end, just like a Japanese emaki (picture scroll). Treasure every scenery for it will never recur.

Lemniscape は、絵巻物のように無限に続く景色を映すアニメーションによるインスタレーションです。描画のたびに様相の異なるその世界は一期一会。

Opportunistics

Opportunistics is a moving-image installation, based on the autonomic programmes that interrupts in and manipulates the seemingly calm scenes in opportunistic manners. It comes with some pieces of daytime clouds in a sunny sky, but they are suddenly interrupted by a rainy twilight sky, accompanied by environmental ambience and mixed sounds of sea, rain, flowing air, footsteps and subtle reading voice.
The main theme of this work is to reflect and question our sense of time and its meanings.

映像インスタレーション作品 Opportunistics です。一見穏やかに見える景色に、別のビジュアルが唐突に割り込み、かき乱す、日和見的な動きのプログラムを内包しています。
私たちが日頃あたりまえのように感じている、時間の感覚やその意味するところへ思いを馳せ、問いかけることをテーマとしています。
