Katsuki Nogami – YamadaTaroProject

Abstract:
A performer exchanges people’s faces on the streets as his own face with an iPad. You can recognize him by a face displayed on iPad, which is like a name or icon on the Internet. People on the SNS chose a face for themselves or famous talents or animation characters. This performance expresses the temporality and the anonymity of the Internet. This Project’s name, YamadaTaro, is almost an anonymous name in Japan like ”John Smith”.
