Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media [YCAM] presensts its 5th anniversary exhibition “minimum interface” which gives a look at communication design from the position of the interface. The exhibition starts from November 1st and continues until February 8th, 2009.
The theme of this exhibition, “the future of the interface,” was chosen to reflect the particular cultural diverseness of today’s information society. On display are a variety of works from the fields of film, photography, animation, sound, architectural sculpture, product design and others, selected based on the principles of “art + physical expression” as an original discipline pioneered by YCAM. A total of eight artists/units from Japan, U.S., Netherlands, and Spain present their newest pieces of art and design – including commissioned works – at several points across the venue.
