What is the benefit of an online festival?
How we can utilize this unfortunate but unique opportunity?
TOKYO GARDEN will be a place where we exhibit current Japanese artists’ works, but, will also be a chance to trace the origin of Japanese Media Art through talks, interviews and a sharing archive.
KEY: Online, 2020, TOKYO, CONTEXT, ARCHIVE, LIVE, Map the new world.

The artist's vocals in an anechoic chamber will be transmitted to a reverberant space to be played back. Instead of uploading the completed live performance to the Internet, the process of making the sound resonate is installed in the venue, and the live performance is finally completed in the physical space. In this case, the project begins in Anechoic Room of NTT ICC and is completed in the reverberation room of Ono Sokki. The audience will be able to watch the creation and completion of sound.

Thank you for watching our program. Live stream is no longer available.
Director’s message
The vibrations of voices in the air create a recognizable sound that spreads through space. Through the Internet, it transcends location and is delivered to the audience. We hope that people all over the world will enjoy her live performance at Ars, where she experiments with her own voice.
