[Student Consortium: Lib-LIVE!]


Date:  November 18(Fri)-27(Sun), 2005/10:00-18:00 closed Monday
admission free
Venue: ICC 4F
Organizer: NTT InterCommunication Center [ICC]
Cooperation: IAMAS, Tama Art University, Tokyo National University of
Fine Arts and Music, Tokyo Zokei University, Musashino Art University

Student Consortium: Lib-LIVE!

Lib-LIVE! is a project unprecedented in the way it connects people to other people and centers on people's dialogues with each other. We conceived of the idea of Lib-LIVE! in an effort to create a project that utilizes the flexibility of students. This project archives the approaches to media and technology by various people connected to expression, and is open as a library in order to secure possibilities for expression that exceeds not only media art, but all existing fields. Through this, we hope to become aware of problems we must consider as people educated in media art, and to discover problems in the future. Further, this project is a reconfirmation of the existence of media art in art, society, and culture as well as our existence, and it aims to simultaneously serve as a place to recreate their positions. Lib-LIVE! is a project designed to create dialogue through interviews and questionnaires. Through the continuation of this project, not only is it possible to archive past events, but also creates archives with a mind to the future. This library will continue to develop, not only by obtaining information, but also through continuation and participation, being a place that promotes communication.

La compagnie japonaise Project Fukurow, fondée en 1996 par Ishikawa Fukurow, explore différents modes d'expressions tels que les écritures chorégraphiques, les arts cinétiques et les arts visuels. Sur scène, les robots et les danseurs tissent des relations qui relèvent tour à tour de l'étrangeté, de la fascination, du mimétisme ou du conflit.

Bend Anything! 何でもベンドしてみよう!

「ベンディング」とは、身のまわりにある既成のものを改造して、そこから新しい音や光を生みだすことだ。改造するものは何 でもいい。電子回 路を改造すればサーキット・ベンディングだし、スピーカーを改造すればスピーカー・ベンディング。ファイルを改造すればデータ・ベンディングで、プログラ ムを改造すればソフトウェア・ベンディングだ。人間を改造してしまえば、それはきっとヒューマン・ベンディングと呼ばれるだろう。重要なのはベンディング によって、それまで隠されていた未知の機能を発掘し、そこから予想外の使用法を発見したり、新たな意味や美学を創造することだ。

今回開催される「bend++」は大きく2部に分れている。 10月の1〜2日に開催される第1部は、ベンディング の世界を探求するベンダー達の祭典だ。ベンディングの入門ワーク ショップや大学対抗のコンサート、誰でも参加できるベンディング自慢 やベンディングの達人によるパフォーマンスが行なわれる。10月 の7〜10日に行われる第2部では、このベンディング 文化を背景とした、新進気鋭の学生アーティスト達によるメディア・インスタレーションの展示が行われる。

Project Fukurow
at Jacob's Pillow Dance (USA)

This company from Tokyo makes its Pillow debut―one that will be among the most provocative of the season for its imaginative movement style and set design. The element of surprise is a main feature of this unique troupe, as dancers move from fluid state to mechanical speed, objects are not what they appear to be, and the stage takes on an atmosphere of myth and mystery.

Galerie des enfants

composition "Verena" (from "Maschinelle Stratageme" compilation/ mille plateaux-ritornell version)

In bond with the exhibition Sounds and lights, of the Center Pompidou, "Gallerie des enfants" present for the first time an exhibition on "sound material" to quote Varese.

The exhibition proposes a course sensitive, ludic, a pallet of sounds through a selection of contemporary art work and listening systems and is spreading in two spaces of the  Galerie des enfants who offer two contrasted atmospheres. The space, open on the Forum, proposes a urban landscape of various
structured interiors (part, alcove, living room, boudoir, cabins) which makes it possible to the young public to play with interactive works.
