« Digital Choc Prix .01 – A.I.R.
Hi, I’m Goh, an artist.
I’m in Marseille in France for the creation of my new work, « Trustless Trust/Mk.God”, and it was exhibited in the event, Made in Friche – Machines . It’s in La Friche that very big complex arts center.
There is the new international art award, Digital Choc, which was made by Institut Français Japon, Zinc and Second Nature, supported by Diffusion Digital Art. I’d won the award, and I was assigned this residence program since Oct.
This article is just a brief report, and I’ll upload the details later on.
This is the first version of « Trustless Trust/Mk.God” and a piece of my project “The Matrix”. It’s an installation of AudioVisual, and this version consists of two screens and ten speakers system.
This work shows rising processes of artificial mind. In the work, they/artifacts are dreaming in the future, and that is about the origin of themselves.
This work will be exhibited in Tokyo on Feb 2015.
This residence program is really amazing. A lot of things for artist were provided, such as working studios, production fee, living fee, technical supports, house and other things. I’m incredibly lucky.
This time, I was working at three studios. Every place is big.
This is the third studio and the exhibition space. I think, it’s difficult in Japan to exhibit only one installation in such big studio.
This is the second studio, it’s like theater. This studio has big space and seats for showing, a bar/cafeteria, and a basement rooms include toilet and shower. Then, I could use them alone… very nice.
(actually, I was living in here and playing loud music in the night. specially, when I almost fall asleep, some noise which I made is useful for recovering consciousness. o(｀ω´ )o
Fortunately, everyone who I met is really kind and interesting, and I was saved by them. I’m really grateful to all the people who supported me.
I was given a lot of supports, so I have to return them by my work. My goal is a long way from here, but I could begin to create the work. This work still continue. I’ll come back with the complete version. »
余 談なんですけど，後半は，ほとんどスタジオに住んでいました．（めっちゃ素敵な部屋を外部に借りてもらっていたんだけど，作品の近くにいたくて(しんどく て帰る気力なくて)スタジオに寝泊まりしていました．つまりいつも通りです．． ようやく気付いたのは，僕はそういう生態の動物だったんですね，たぶん．
