Tomoko Mukai | Plan and Concept / Text
Tomoko Mukai engages with cultural and spatial projection through computer-generated optical landscapes. Her approach aims to provide intuitive experiences focusing on complex relationships between information, memory and bodily perception shared in social life. She has presented them at various kinds of sites as cultural and historical hubs in local communities like Tokyo National Museum, Kaneiji Temple, “Kashiwa-yu Dori” on the street, Yanaka area (Tokyo) , Hofu Shrine, Ichinosaka-gawa River (Yamaguchi), Trinitatis Church, St. Gertrud (Germany). She emphasizes interdisciplinary collaboration with other different fields of professionals. In such collaborations, she fosters to stride across the boundary of platforms for expressions between different genres.
