Media Center at Kyoto Seika

My morning session viewing work at the media center at Kyoto Seika was enjoyable and fruitful, and I was able to see a number of works by Japanese moving image artists relevant to my research. The highlights of the morning viewing include two pieces by Takahiko Iimura- Ayers Rock (1985) and Ma: Space-Time in the Garden of Ryoan-Ji (1989), Visual Brains’ witty De-Sign 2 and a number of impressive works by Takashi Ito from two compilations of work from the 1980’s and 1990’s Illumination Ghost. The second compilation tape included an impressive and darkly disturbing work entitled¬† Zone (1996).

On my way home from the university this afternoon, I stopped to take a few more images, as tomorrow I leave for Tokyo, and Saturday I fly home to London.
