[ISEA2002] Artist Statement: Fumiaki Murakami – Reverse

Artist Statement

“You can turn the switch on/off. You can open the cover.” “If you stare inside, close the cover immediately because I fear your eyes and perhaps I will come to dislike you. Certainly, you should cut me dead. Continue on and Ignore me.” Participant can turn the switch on/off. And they can peep inside the switch box. If I hate you, you hate me. and I will hate you or more. This action continues eternity. I explore relations between a fellow humanity.
