I created an art work about "noise problems" in 2015. By researching the meaning and usage of the word on the Internet, I found there were many ideas of "noise problems" scattered such as complaints, unfocused definition and criterion etc. Then, I tried to represent "noise problem" as "voices that have nowhere to go"; by sometimes yelling from speakers attached on vehicle, the other time whispering secretly. These voices were brought into a sound installation that invites audience to vicarious experiences again and again. For this project, I would like to try to create a space with recorded sound and voices, detaching from their original contexts, and the place tries to offer chances to be listened to wandering sounds.


Born in Yamagata, Japan, in 1981. Artist.
