A Visit to the ICC and meeting with Michael Goldberg

This morning I visited NTT’s InterCommunication Center (ICC) in Shinjuku to see the exhibition Open Space 2010, which featured a number of stunning new works by Japanese media artists. I was particularly impressed by The Tenth Sentiment, a beautiful and engaging¬† (although unfortunately unphotographable!) installation by Ryota Kuwakubo,¬† Morel’s Panorama, by Masaki Fujihata and a circular structure for the internal observer by Norimichi Hirakawa.

After lunch I met with and interviewed video pioneer, animateur and artist Michael Goldberg, who is considered by many in Japan to be the “father” of Japanese video art.
