Ayaka Okutsu: My work challenges the limit and possibility of human sense. With the help of digital manipulation, I am making a work of art that creates artificial impairment in hearing and seeing. The audience are questioned what our actual experience mean in our life and art viewing.
For Hotel Pro Forma, I am producing a video installation that takes a style of story telling with singing voice, but the sound and picture will be manipulated according to the different development in the sense of human and frog* in different stage of their life. The audience will experience a life going through different perceptions. All digital manipulation and binaurallyrecorded sound creates uncanny sense of dimension and physicality. The reality and the experience are unsynchronized.
*Frog is chosen to represent the example of body development in different animals. Not only it´s mind opening to experience how other animals see and hear the world, but I would like to give awareness of how our body is designed according to our social skills and the geography/architecture of our living space.
