YAMADA TARO PROJECT
Japanese art project happening in Berlin and Tokyo by Katsuki Nogami, capturing faces displayed on iPads as heads and shared across the two cities - video embedded below:
This name is very traditional and most Japanese name like John Smith.But we can’t meet person whose this name,only example model.So this is like anonymous name.This time,performer doesn’t have face.So this person is looking for face and got and exchange many faces.You can recognize this person by only face.This is like icon on the Internet.There,you can masquerade other people.And that icon is walking in the city selfishly.Yamada taro is anonymous.
This project is done at the same time in Berlin and Tokyo where we are now, and it relays it in the hall. All the data of the face is sharing each places and you can see changing faces from Berlin and Tokyo.There is 8hours time difference,but faces got in real time go quickly 8hours,appears in real sight.You may feel real time.
