in Taipei




I went to Taipei on the return way to research about media art in Taiwan. The media art scene in Taipei is very active. There are many sound art events here and probably a city-organized media art center will be opened next year.
Although the city of Taipei is quite different from Hong Kong, however,I like the atmosphere. I didn't forget to eat Taiwanese food. TASTY!




The Taipei National Uiversity of the Arts and Prof. Yuan.

I met media art people at the Taipei National University of the Arts, included Prof. Yuan and Yung-Ta. I had a lecture and introduced our art center's activities. I saw high-motivated students there.

I couldn't go to the Palace Museum this time too. I've visited some times, although I've never gone to there as well as the Peak in Hong Kong. I must go back to do only sight seeing.

in Hong Kong 3

I've planned to make an archive of my friends' interviews. I shoot the movies on the day when I leave from Hong Kong. But it seems that I didn't succeed at the beginning. I must train. These clips are trials. I'll re-take their movies again.

Fion. I've met her in Tokyo 10 years ago at the first. Time flies. We exchange info about Japanese and Hong Kong cinemas, and good food.

in Hong Kong 2


I met Daan Roosegaarde at microwave festival.
I thought clearly that I must think about interactive art as performance after his presentation. I've got a piece of the thought when I was in Seoul last month. The thought made more clear face now. The works by Rafa are also in this concept. Participant can be performer in the front of this kind of the works.

in Hong Kong 1











I finally reached to Hong Kong after I have been two years ago.

I realized how I love the toughness and heart of this city. I really like the mix of the air of urban and Asian energy (food!). Also I love Star Ferry. I love vehicle which isn't belong to anyplace, like ship or ropeway. I found an amazing ropeway at Ocean Park this time. It's increditable sights from it.
