Being a fan of Japan culture, I was invited to the second exhibition which Yoichi Ochiai holds his first large-scale private exhibition of media art at Cube_1 (Iseten The Japan Store, Lot 10).
So who's Yoichi Ochiai?
He is a globally renowned emerging media artist and assistant professor at Tsukuba University. Described as a "wizard" in the modern age, as if Edison whom he admires as a media artist was an inventor, Yoichi has been envisioning the concept of Digital Nature: an alternative ecosystem where computational resources, nature and humanity have merged together seamlessly in the post ubiquitous computing era.
In this aspirational exhibition featuring approximately 20 of his works, including cutting-edge technology and traditional media such as soap bubbles and magnifying glasses familiar to all generations, you will discover the world of this 21st century wizard through vision and physical experiences. I was lucky enough to meet Yoichi himself on the first day of the exhibition and gotten myself a private tour.
