Art and Philosophy in the 22nd Century After ARAKAWA and GINS
On-Site Lecture 2 (J/E): March 13
Yasuo Nomura, "Reversible Destiny Opened in Zero Gravity"
Based on my research at Reversible Destiny Foundation and interviews with related people in New York, together with my past fieldwork in Japan, I will consider the possibilities of Reversible Destiny Architecture in zero gravity that might be realized in a coming space age. This presentation will be accompanied by the display of my models. In the past, I have explored through painting the issue of spatiality and dimensionality and the expansion of our bodily perception. I have seen much in common between the visions of Reversible Destiny Architecture proposed by Arakawa + Gins and the possibilities of a new sense of the body that the next space-age generation of humans will acquire in a condition totally liberated from gravity. I would like to imagine what kind of Reversible Destiny Architecture the two would envision, should they survive into the future space age.
