About Desiring Unspeakable Entropy
“Collision point on dimensions” is a joint exhibition with "Floating Between the Tropical and Glacial Zones" held by TOKAS, an art support center. This co-facilitated project is a duo exhibition, collaborating between Yoichi Kamimura, an artist who has been investigating and produced works on drift ice in the Sea of Okhotsk in collaboration with Hokkaido University, and Seiha Kurosawa, a curator and artist who has investigated the natural environment and culture of the Amazon region in Brazil.
The title of the exhibition "Collision point on dimensions: 35°42'59.0" - N 139°46'07.4 "E - 36.0892 "AA Ft” points the longitude latitude and absolute altitude at the venue The 5th Floor. This exhibition presents coordinates on the earth's surface that go beyond the so-called "poles".
The new coronavirus, COVID-19, has confronted us with the reality that we are forced to refrain from the very "movement/transportation" that was once essential to our lives. We are trying to solve our frustration about the inability to move with various alternatives. For example, how much detail can we imagine about a coordinate that points out a certain point in the physical or the virtual world? We are limited to recognize the coordinate as only a numerical value. This exhibition is an attempt to arouse the imagination of human beings, which is raised from the rationalized language of coordinates.
