BAKERU

Interactive Installation, Sendai Mediatheque|2017
An experiential video installation performance based on the motif of festivals and traditional events passed down from the history of the Tohoku region. This work allows one to personally experience the mysterious phenomenon of transforming into a non-human being. Building on WOW's interpretation, this work was visualized on the basis of four traditional event motifs: Namahage (ogre), Shishi-odori (deer dance), Kasedori (straw bird), and Saotome (young girl). As you face the screen, your silhouette begins to transform into each character, and the magnificent group performance begins to unfold through an animation projected on screen. It is a spectacle that allows you to enjoy and experience the mystic, eerie powers of transformation that will turn you into something new--something non-human. This is a performance that brings you in close contact with the traditional culture born from the spiritual atmosphere of the Tohoku region through a completely new type of expression, inspired by the desire to bequeath the value of such an experience onto future generations.
