Takayoshi Tsuchiya – UpHill

JAPAN MEDIA ARTS FESTIVAL

Abstract:
It depicts a myriad of scroll bars randomly moving up and down the screen. The artist has not created a video, merely a software program that display automatically scroll bars on a web browser. The bars exist only on the server. The “Domain Series” is a collection of works where information of a non-physical nature provides us with a visual depiction of physical environments subject to the pull of gravity (simulated motion) and physical spaces (simulated expansion). Their lack of physical presence brings them close to conceptual art.
