書道家の横山豊蘭とのコラボレーション。手本となる書を書者の視界全面を被うディスプレイに映し出す。映し出された手本以外視界が無いため、映像のオペレータに位置を誘導されながら「映し出された手本」を書いて行く。書者の筆の先には小型のビデオカメラが設置され、筆から紙に流れていく墨の様子がビデオプロジェクターによりスクリーンに映し出される。書者の心音などの身体的な音が集音マイクにより集められ会場に反響する。それらを繰り返し、ギャラリー一面に「臨書」していく。

 

RINSHO
In this exhibit, the calligrapher’s field of vision will be enveloped by a calligraphy head-mount monitor that he is to use as an original that he is to copy off of. Because the calligrapher can not see anything but the original, he is to write the “rojected original”while being guided by the operator of the projected image.A small video camera is located at the tip of the calligrapher’s brush to capture the condition of the ink flowing onto the paper from the brush.A video projector will reflect this image onto a screen.Physical sounds such as the alligrapher’s breathing will be detected with a small microphone for it to echo throughout the gallery.RINSHO will be conducted throughout the gallery by repeating the actions above.
