Media installation

YAMASHIRO Daisuke [Japan]


A performance-based installation incorporating video, moving lights, acoustic elements, musical instruments and multiple objects, positioning the audience around the work’s white-tiled rectangular stage. The artist inflects objects on the stage with motion and light in time with sounds produced by musician KAKUDO Manami. The work takes as its theme synesthesia, the phenomenon of perceiving external stimuli with different senses than ordinary.
