between nature and technology
Roving across Europe and Japan, this film covers over three decades of Shiro Takatani’s artistic journey via his installation, theatrical and dance-based performances. Alongside collaborators that include composer Ryuichi Sakamoto, Takatani explains the driving principles behind his work where nature and people are observed through modern means. Takatani uses technology to improve our understanding of our environment: infinitely enhancing small organisms, showing large scale galaxies, creating an interaction between performers/dancers with cameras and large screens. Carefully selected performances and installations demonstrate the evolution of his work.
