Symptom Visualized

Akira WAKITA

In this solo exhibition “Symptom Visualized”, works capturing social phenomena macroscopically are exhibited. He focuses on social phenomena such as ideological conflict, difficult-to-control economic system and accelerated consumer civilization, while using physical and chemical methods as a base. This is also an attempt to skewer natural science and social science from the axis of art. Ambitious works are also exhibited from the aspect of technique: installation exploring contact point between mapping image and junk electronics, work that extends the physicality of liquid crystal display, some spin-off movies from live performance with Tetsuya Komuro at MUTEK / RedBull Music Festival.
