ジャパニーズテクニウム展

Outline

Dr.Yoichi Ochiai has been exploring the possibilities of expression between images and substances as a media artist. He also has been organizing “Digital Nature Group” in University of Tsukuba based on what he founds “the theme of updating modern humanity” in this exploration. This exhibition aims to look back on these researches and discoveries, belonging to the social questions from both aspects of technical and the artistic point of view. The word "Technium" refers to both ecological and genetic views of technology and its originally proposed by Kevin Kelly, the ex-chief editor of WIRED. This is the concept that technologies themselves have ecological views beyond the sort of creature and computers. The name of this exhibition "Japanese Technium" stands for "Japanese Media Motif" that Dr. Ochiai has discovered in his exploration as a media artist. He believes that "Japanese Technium" has been generalized by this industrialized society, dilution by this popularized media and subcultures, it is a new nonverbal expression by aesthetic sense and embodiment by Japanese point of view.
