Lab Café Special featuring Railway Art Festival - "Constructing Ideas with Invisible Sounds and No Form (Invisible Designs Lab)"

2016-11-12 (Sat) 17:00 - 19:00

Invisible Designs Lab is a creative music team that has crossed over the boundary between digital and analog in order to make "visible" the invisible messages of "sound" and the invisible designs of "ideas." In Railway Art Festival vol. 6 "An Adventure of Structure," by using sensor technology in a piece that turns attendees' actions into triggers that play music, an "audible system" is constructed at the venue. In a time when the internet and programming become more approachable, MATSUO Kenjiro (representative, Invisible Designs Lab) continues to examine the relationship between humans and sounds from a variety of angles using a number of different approaches. On the first day of the exhibit, we've invited Mr. Matsuo to talk with us about his own works and the works on display.

What is Lab Café?

A major program instituted at Art Area B1, "Lab Café" is designed and implemented by the Center for the Study of Communication-Design. Lab Café is an interactive program in which participants have wide-ranging discussions on a variety of topics. The program aims to make the station a communication space in the arts and academia by taking up various themes in philosophy, art, science and technology and providing the general public with chances to be exposed to expertise on those topics.

What is Art Area B1?

The concourse of the first basement of Naniwabashi Station was set up as Art Area B1 when the Keihan Electric Railway's Nakanoshima Line was opened on October 19, 2008. Since then, the project has aimed to make the station a center of artistic communication.
