ABOUT: A group exhibition of Japan new media art. Contemplation is one of the key elements to the Eastern Philosophy, taking its origins in Zen culture and writing traditions. At the same time, Observation allows one to investigate the laws of the Physical Universe. The term Observer Effect implies an influence that a scientist has on the subject of his observation.
Gathered projects turn hidden forces of nature (gravity, electromagnetism, kinetic tension, radiation and more) to the tangilble, hearable and visible forms, allowing a viewer to become an observer himself and spend time contemplating.
