COLORS & CLOUDS

Minatomirai Station, Yokohama (2004)

To coincide with the opening of the Minatomirai subway line, NTT developed a media system called the Mirai Tube. Camera sensors pick up the positions of people as they move about the station concourse, and those positions are in turn expressed as visual feedback. The system was planned as a new advertising medium.
NTT commissioned four groups of artists/designers to create works using the system to be shown in the exhibition in the tube at the Minatomirai station concourse in Yokohama. Living World was one of the groups, and created two works: COLORS and CLOUDS.

Displayed: 2004.2.1 – early summer
Sponsored by NTT
in the tube planned by Tamio Kihara (NTT)

Project direction, photography and design: Living World
Music: Kimitaka Matsumae (COLORS), Kyo Ichinose (CLOUDS)
Engineering: Yukio Ando (Exa)

Display titles and web design: Katsuya Nakamura (AGES 5 & UP)
Special thanks to Kazumi Kudo (Coelacanth K&H)

A little bonus: lenticular clouds we captured on film one day during the making of CLOUDS!
