[ISEA2002] Artists Statement: Mika Miyabara & Tatsuo Sugimoto – bounce street

Artists Statement

Various colors are changing in the street. This work is expressing change of the color in the street with the animation and sound in which balls are bouncing. The expression of the street – signboards of stores, people’s dress which goes back and forth – is photoed with video camera. The photoed image becomes the animation in which balls bounce on realtime. And it is projected on the surface of a wall of a building. People passing through the street can participate in change of the color of a town, and can enjoy the ball and sound which bounce.
