Shiro Takatani

between nature and technology

Riproduci video

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.
