“Coded Field” will be held on November 16, 2019, as part of “Tokyo Tokyo FESTIVAL Special 13” organized by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government and Arts Council Tokyo (Tokyo Metropolitan Foundation for History and Culture).
This is a public art program that takes place at Daihonzan of Japanese Pure Land Buddhism Zojoji and Shiba district located in the historic and traditional area in Tokyo, surrounding the Zojoji Temple.
Structural and geographical data of Zojoji Temple will be analyzed using programming “Code” and generate a virtual “Field” with this coded information embedded. That invisible information will be translated into light and sound which can be experienced in real space through balloon-shaped special devices developed independently by Rhizomatiks. Participants can enjoy transition of light and sound by walking around the venue.
“Coded Field” consists of a large scale experiential installation which many people can enjoy at the same time, and dance performance by ELEVENPLAY, a dance company directed by choreographer MIKIKO.
In Tokyo where history and future, or tradition and innovation meet, the special art space will come into life for one night. Please come and enjoy the futuristic Tokyo.
