Masaru Tabei and Yasuno Miyauchi - Ibuki - Presence in a Sigh
This is a sound object that you will crave to touch. You don't
hear Ibuki with your ears but by vibrations transmitted through the body.
The material used and the shape of the object invites the visitor to
embrace it and to rest their chin on it. Vibrations are transmitted through
the jaw and the sound can be heard. The experience generates an overwhelming
sense of the small object's huge presence.
Masaru Tabei was born in 1978
in Gumma, Japan and is currently studying an M.A. in Interactive Media
at IAMAS (Institute of Advanced Media Art and Science), Japan. Yasuno
Miyauchi was born in 1980 in Tokyo, Japan and is currently studying time-based
media at IAMAS and also studied Music Composition at Tokyo Gakugei University.
Ibuki - Presence in a Sigh has previously been shown in the exhibition
Source of Life - IAMAS in Yokohama in 2006.
