Interdisciplinary Art Festival Tokyo / Japan

In 2009, Interdisciplinary Art Festival Tokyo (IAFT) was founded, as a reincarnation of “Far East Audio Visual Socialization (FEAVS),” to shatter the current norm of fixed spaces and audiences; and to discover artists who create new values going beyond the borders of artistic practice. We feature artists who engage in interdisciplinary practice, creating new values that connect people by introducing more dynamic art festivals that reflects contemporary society. Our purpose is to provide new and free perspectives that enrich people with inspiration – expanding the opportunity for the artists to present their works, by introducing experimental and avant-garde art. We aim for both creators and viewers to mutually share their feed back with each other: build the foundation for new art, and rejuvenate the art scene by featuring innovative artists with clear concepts and new visions.

This experimental video work expresses time and space between gravity and weightlessness, air and water, through shimmering and distortion.
Recently, recreational divers have been volunteering to clean up trash on the ocean floor in order to protect the marine environment.
I have been creating video works from footage I have shot under the sea.
I made this work by recycling the video and audio data bugs that occurred during the process and the footage that would otherwise have been thrown in the trash.
