MAPPING SOUND INSTALLATION official website is opend!!

“Mapping Sound Installation” is an art project, in which the space of YCAM (both studio space and public space) is regarded as a place for installing sound-art, and the site-specific and public-oriented sound designs are mapped spatially. At each mapping spot, aesthetic meaning and social function of the three-dimensional spatial extent is unconventionally designed through sound-art so that visitors and users can perceive and actually go through new experiences. In this project, both artists and visitors pursue the entire building as a range of living and moving spaces, while the horizontally circulatory feature of the YCAM architecture is highlighted, and delicate linkage between public art and human senses is activated.

2nd Gifu Ogaki Biennale 2006

The 2nd Gifu Ogaki Biennale 2006 international media art festival will be held this forthcoming Friday October 6 to Sunday October 15. The Biennale will be directed by media art curator and internationally active critic, Gunalan Nadarajan, and media aesthetics professor at the Institute for Advanced Media Arts and Sciences, Hiroshi Yoshioka. They present Janken as the universal theme at Biennale, reinterpreting the non-European game as a flexible and mythical idea. This Biennale has two distinct features: First, it will be the first exhibition in Japan that focuses on Asian media artists from countries such as Singapore, Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia, India, China and South Korea which have in recent years grown with rapid momentum, drawing global attention. Second, these exhibitions will be deployed throughout various places on the streets of Ogaki City, Gifu.
In addition to the works above, there will be artist talks, symposia, workshops, performances and exhibitions of artworks by artists from Japan and other countries, IAMAS (Institute of Advanced Media Arts and Sciences, International Academy of Media Arts and Sciences) students and graduates. This will be an event full of fresh ideas and the latest information technology such as a unique stamp collecting activity developed specifically for the Biennale and sound events from a specially customized bus.
