HAPPENINGText: Yasuharu Motomiya

There were many Nyoros on the floor. The exhibition was divided throughout two stories, the cafe on the first floor and the gallery on the second floor. Although the cafe was opened as usual, Nyoros were displayed on the first floor. Customers enjoyed drinking tea or eating something. In this situation, to look into the hole felt special.

Prefuse 73’s PV and Ed Holdsworth’s works, who took part in Resfest, were very impressive. The two parts-the scene of city and the nature – were created by using the same technique, but it gave us a totally different impression by mixing different information with them.

On the other hand, two Nyoros on the second floor were also interesting. The visuals were named “Poetry” in which TANKA, given by Kouichi Masuno, were turned into visuals by creators. Poetry is on the CQ web site now.

On the whole, each visual was short (about a minute), but each one had an original world. This time, the identity of Resfest was a baby robot, and Johnny Hardstaff said the works of creators are like a kind of baby. The evolution of mobile tools brought a new type of entertainment visuals on small displays. Probably, the visuals are the baby of the future. While the exhibition in Tokyo is over, it is going to held in Osaka and Fukuoka.. I recommend to go and feel them for yourself.
