Looking for New Furniture / 新しい家具を見たい

Looking for New Furniture / 新しい家具を見たい


For example, now, as a ground version of “Fluid Furniture”, it is assumed that “Strange Furniture that has never existed, such as being a Chair and also a Bed” appeared. At that time, if 10 years or 20 years ago people just feel a sense of incongruity, if for some reason this furniture feels more comfortable than an existing chair or bed, what kind of situation has happened in our world? It is an important “One Sign” for changes in human senses?

たとえば、今、「流体家具」の地上版として、「椅子でもあり、ベッドでもあるような、これまで存在しなかった不思議な家具」が登場したとする。その時、10年や20年前なら人びとが違和感を覚えたに過ぎないとしても、なぜか、この家具の方が既成の椅子やベッドよりも心地いいと感じるとするならば、一体何が起きていることになるだろう? それは、人間の感覚の変化に対する重要な「ひとつのサイン」になるのではないか。


In other words, the people are now beginning to seek “Creation of a New Posture between <Stand> and <Sitting>, also <Sitting> and <Lying>“. For that reason, “New Furniture” that enables the new posture is needed, and maybe we are beginning to seek a more delicate, smoother and more amicable design between the chair and the bed?



Because, each time when we come to a furniture section in a department store we have a question like that how long the shape of a chair and a bed are fixed as the same before 100 years? Then, we have a hope, maybe people have a same hope too, it will be better that almost one completely fantastic furniture that we have never seen before will appear, because people’s senses and desires could change very much in our time.



Gently I would like to see “New Furniture“. Because, it was an ancient time, very before, humans could create “Chair for the Sitting”. If “Talismanic Fluid Furniture, as a chair and same time as a bed” will appear and if people love it, yes, this new furniture will be a great “Gift from the Universe” for us to bring a new era to the earth.



On our ground too, we can build up a new way to realize a new revolution based on the body through such a “Creating Postures”. On one occasion, like Shiro Kuramata, Japanese industrial designer could design a very eccentric chair. Now, like last Kuramata, we have a becoming time to start to seek “Talismanic Furniture” as a new type actively? Even so, as a demand of a new era, we would like to seek an appearance of “New Furniture” not only for “Release from the Gravity” which Kuramata has dreamed but also for “Creating Postures between 0 gravity and 1 gravity” with a wide field of the vision for the improvement of earth environment and the cultural space development.


With Residents in Surplus Dimension / 異界の住人たちと

With Residents in Surplus Dimension
/ 異界の住人たちと


One day, while I was playing in Space Tunnel, I noticed that Space Tunnel would deform depending on the postures I took. It was a subtle deformation, so I didn’t pay attention to it at first. But, when I saw it closely I also noticed that in Space Tunnel, like the convex and the concave, the “Boundary” where two contradictory curved surfaces were connected was created or disappeared. This “Boundary” is the gateway to another world? In other words, when the residents in Surplus Dimension appear they form the unique warped spaces, so they distort Space Tunnel subtly. Its distortion is just the “Boundary”. What an unique way for the residents in Surplus Dimension to appear through the “Boundary”!

ある日、がスペーストンネルの中で遊んでいたら、私がとる姿勢に応じてスペーストンネルが変形することに気がついた。とても微妙な変形なので、最初は気に留めていなかった。しかし、よく見ていると、スペーストンネルの中には、凸と凹のように、たがいに矛盾する二つの曲面が接続されている「境界」が生まれたり消滅したりしていることにも気がついた。この「境界」が異界への出入り口になるのではないか? つまり、異界の住人たちがスペーストンネルに姿を現わす時は、それぞれ独特なワープする空間を形成するために、スペーストンネルの形状を微妙に歪めるのだ。その歪みが「境界」なのだ。「境界」を介して異界の住人たちが出現するとは、何とユニークな方法だろう。


I could meet Kibe, a clone monkey, when I took a “Monkey’s Posture” and entered a “Monkey’s World” in Space Tunnel. Kibe was 17 years old. His hands were the same as the humans, but when I saw his feet I knew his big toes were the same as the humans. Kibe was born by inserting a genetically modified human male’s sperm into the womb of his mother monkey. He is one of the most noticeable artificial animals in the medical world. But, he suddenly left home last year and he was a hot topic in the world. According his speaking, after he was educated as a “Family Member” on a trial basis at one researcher’s house who had a direct relationship with his birth, Kibe escaped, then he started to live alone in Space Tunnel. He was grateful for the education, but he said it was the imposition of values in the humans world to him, so he couldn’t stand it.



Kibe cried and spoke to me. “I know my birth was meant to tell people the direction of humans evolution. The humans want to know what new things I would invent with a tool by four hands when my legs became hands completely. I lived in a room with lots of tools every day. It was my daily routine to play around with it. But I was not interested in its play. It was good for the humans, but not for me. Why the humans do such selfish things to make me half human and half monkey? I want to return to my monkey’s world.”

キベが泣きながら話してくれた。「僕の誕生は人間の進化の方向を占うためのもので、僕の足が完全に手になったら四つの手で道具を使い僕がどんな新しいものを発明するのか、知りたかったらしい。僕はたくさんの道具がある部屋で毎日生活していた。それをいじって遊ぶのが僕の日課だった。でも僕はそんなことに興味がない。それは人間のためにはなっても、僕のためじゃない。半分が人間で半分がサルの僕をつくるなんて、どうして人間はそんな勝手なことをするの? 僕はサルの世界に戻りたい」。

Elena in Surplus Dimension / 余剰次元のエレナ

Elena in Surplus Dimension / 余剰次元のエレナ


This is my “Mythical Journey” to go to find my lost girlfriend ELENA, she died youth, together with my dear space dancers. Through this journey I tried to reach “Surplus Dimension”. Because I felt she lives in Surplus Demension.



My dance starts with living in the space completely. When I dance the space moves, and “Fluctuation” is born in the space. Since “Surplus Dimension” appears in the fluctuation of the space, I am dancing while drawing the surplus dimension into the world. But I don’t know the way yet how to put myself into the surplus dimension.



When I was dancing on a big bridge where many cars traveling with a tremendous speed, suddenly I felt the cold and felt “Emptiness” made a faint around my neck. The “Fluctuation” produced by my dance was expanding between the cars and me, and changed a space. I wonder, this was a hint that the entrance to the “Surplus Demenssion” may be existing near unexpectedly.



I could get in “Trance” first time in my life. Trembling in pleasure, my body began to be cramped. A temporal lobe of my brain shaking subtly, I bacame steadly “Transparent”. Beyond the time, exceeding the place, I sink into the vast “Sea of Memory”, and I fall off from my body.


I heard Elena’s voice. “Inspiration” has come with me. A fear and an uplifting feeling get mexed up. She was always calm and kind, but sometimes she observed me with very scared cool eyes. What was she watching?



Ahh, Elena was calling me. I was led by Elena’s “Voice” and walked out in front of the unknown big shrine. With a “Divine Possession” I felt down into a big garden of this shrine, and I closed my eyes in spite of myself. What kind of event is waiting for me? I want to return if “Terrible death” is waiting, but if it is a “Beautiful death” I can push forward.

あぁ、エレナが私を呼んでいる。彼女の「声」に誘われて歩いて行くと、見知らぬ大きな神社の前に出た。私は神憑り、憑かれたように神社の庭に倒れこみ、目を閉じた。何が起きるのか? 私の口に、自分でも理解できない言葉があふれ出してくる。「恐ろしい死」が待っているなら帰りたい。「美しい死」ならつき進める。


Invited by Elena’s voice, when I entered in a Space Tube which I found it at the mountain behind of this shrine there was a beautiful “Boundary”. When I could image her exactly, my sense become clear and I could go through the narrow “Boundary” which I felt was impossible to do it, finally I went into the new world which I saw at first in my life. What existed the “Surplus Dimenssion” so familiar!



In the “Mysterious Microcosm” called Space Tube which keeps the entrance to the “Surplus Dimenssion”, since the form of Space Tube is determined by my dance movements, I can get a nostalgic feeling as if i return back to the moeter’s womb. Such an experience of the unexpected space gives me a “New Recognition” about the world.



In the “Surplus Dimenssion” various things that lost from our world bustle up. Here, it seems that “Presence of 4 Dimensions” and “Presence of 5 Dimensions” live together. The composition of matter is diferent in the “Surplus Dimension”, so I wonder here my body and my conscioursness are made up by “Another Material”.



Elena was quietly sleeping. Oh, my nostalgic face. And lost animals, dead people, and the alien were also sleeping together. Finally I could find my lost girlfriend. “Please, come on, get up and revive as my wife!”



It is necessary for everyone as much as “Love”, and there is nothing to bother. It is as close as possible, none is impossible in the distance for “Love”. Human beings are always alone, both when we come into the world, when we create our important expressions, and when we die. So, one miracle named “Love” has been born to bring into contact “One” and “One.”



Elena awoke up slowly and greeted me with a familiar smile. Then she stood up quietly and for me she began a most sympathetic and most bewitching dance in the world. I have never seen such a beautiful dance.



I was very suprised with Elena’s speaking. She said that now the dead people hope to get the emigration to the univrse together with the lost animals and the alien. They want to leave the earth. Elena already knew that my group was planning a “Space Emigration Plan”. So, she tried to contact with me and she controled Elena as my memory in my brain, then she invited me here. Now I feel I understand a reason why Elena left our world at a young age.



I became a new through the reunion with Elena. When I looked at my face in the mirror, there was a new face I had never seen. Somehow I felt nostalgic with this face. Just now, I live in my usual word and I also live in Elena’s world same time, I could start the surprising and unexpected life. My life change with a big scale.


My work is to realize the emigration to the universe together with Elena in ordet to not repeat the mistakes of earth culture. Also, in order to recognise one fact more exactly that in our humans world also dead peple, lost animals, and alien live together, and
they want to get their own growth.私の仕事は、エレナと宇宙への移住を果たすこと。地球文化の過ちを繰り返すことがないように。人間の世界には死者たちや失われた動物たちや異星人たちも住んでおり、彼らもまた彼らの成長を望んでいることをもっとよく知るために。

Elena taught me about several interesting points of “Surplus Dimension”. The structure of the “Surplus Dimension” is unique, and countless worlds coexist here. But, the materials constituting one world and the materials constituting other world are different completely, so there is no contact between 2 worlds, any war and any conflict can’t happen there. The progress of one world will not be hindered by the trend of other worlds. Also, for every worlds, even if they fail, if they wish, they can start again from the beginning.



My soul and Elena’s soul resonated with a beautiful link called “Reincarnation”. Every time when we moved through many planets, we died once, and we revived again, then we met again. I and Elena brought up many children and we formed “Big Family” together with many children and friends. Now, finally, we could start on a trip to the end of the universe. Elena is siging with a pleasure, “Hi, Here, we have such the new encounters, and we have such the wondeful happenings”.

Imagination in the age of AI – Space, Information, Body, and Way of Life / AI時代の想像力~宇宙・情報・身体・生き方

Now the world is changing dramatically with a big scale. For stepping into “Unknown World” with 4 themes such as “Space, Information, Body, and Way of Life” we are seeking a “New Imagination“.

[1] Space / 宇宙

From my view point as a Butoh-Space Dance Choreographer, the greatest result of the space development until today is finding a “Chance to organize a Gravity” by the creation of artificial gravity through several astronauts experiences that could realize the experiences of non-gravity environment in the space walk and at a spaceship, also they could experience 1/6 gravity on the Moon. Edwin Aldrin, one of first astronauts of NASA who could reach the ground of Moon on 1969 said “My body is light now, when I start a running I can’t stop! Also I can calm down with my slanting posture!” His reactions about Moon Walking are very interesting for me.


If the humans start to come and go to the conditions between 0 gravity and 1 gravity in the universe this happening will be a complete first experience in our human’s history. So, like a case of the fish that could get the evolution by the advance to the ground, this happening will be a special drama on a stage of the evolution such a “Challenge to the Step for Next Human”. If we have a possibility of the “Next” as the humans it will be started by such an adventure of the new creation of the postures.


So, can we get the pseudo experience to come and go to the conditions between 0 gravity and 1 gravity on this ground too? Can we try to do a new adventure? What are some similar experiences?

私たちは、この地上でも、ゼロ重力と一重力の間を往来するような疑似的体験を得られるだろうか? そんな新しい冒険ができるだろうか? それに近い体験にはどんなものがあるだろうか?

[2] Information / 情報

We have a big theme called “Progress of Virtual Reality” as a pending matter in our information-oriented society. Humans have never infiltrated the information as virtual in the daily world.


For example, what will happen if our lover figures projected around us evolves as an AR by AI? If not only visual effects but also all necessary sensations are artificially entered into the brain and increase reality as if it actually existed? Will it lead to unnecessary theory of a real lover or the problem of further promoting declining birthrate with the sexless? However, as a desire for cloned pets and cloned humans, would it benefit greatly to those who wish to see the deceased relatives or lover’s restorations?

たとえば、自分の周囲に投影される恋人像がARとしてAIにより進化するとどうなるだろうか。視覚効果だけではなく、必要なすべての感覚が脳に人工的に入力され、現実に存在しているかのようにリアリティを増加させるとすれば? リアルな恋人の不要論に結びついたり、セックスレスで少子化をさらに促進させるという問題も生じるだろうか? しかし、クローン人間に対する欲求と同じで、亡き親族や恋人の再生を願う者には大きな恩恵になるのでは?

Recently, the event that professional Go players and Shogi players lose to artificial intelligence Go and artificial intelligence Shogi is going on. As a result, the vigilance against artificial intelligence will rise at once, it is feared that AI will surpass the human’s intelligence and the day when human’s work will be totally deprived. Indeed, various programming of “AI models” such as “Taxi Driver with superior intuition than humans”, “Financial Market Trader who produce ideas better than humans”, and “Politician who create policies superior to humans” has begun.


However, what is the realization of  “Progress of Virtual Reality” that we really need? Instead of being swayed by “Progress of Virtual Reality” as we do today, what is “Virtual” that enriches ourselves truly? What do we want to do for that? We need to think more about it with enough imagination.

しかし、私たちに本当に必要な「仮想化の進展」の在り方とは? 現在のように「仮想化の進展」に私たちが振り回されるのではなく、私たち自身を豊かにする「仮想」とは? そのためには、私たちはどうなりたいのか? それについて、私たちは、充分な想像力により更に深く考える必要があるだろう。

[3] Body / 身体

Now Medical Service will open a new door of our human’s history using by iPS cell, Genome Editing and so on. The body is being in the spotlight as the object of “Regeneration” and “Industrialization.”


Moreover, on 2015 Anthony James, a molecule biologist, announced a sensational big news that he could get a success to create a new mosquito that don’t need the intermediation with a malaria parasite by Genome Edition.


At last, Humans has gotten a “Technology to handle All Species of the Creatures”.


The way how to treat the individual body will be “Free for everybody“, they don’t need any kind of permissions to do it including a makeup, a cosmetic surgery, and a drug, also a tattoo, a body pierce, a doing injury to the body, at last a suicide. So, nobody can oppose to it basically. By taking the Enhancement if we can get back our health, or if we can get the body ability more beyond the natural condition, and if we don’t have any side effects after the operation, also if we will be able to control a long life freely, it will be just a realization of our human’s long dream. In that time, we can’t find any kind of reasons for opposition, everybody will jump at the Enhancement.


If we can cover our lost lovers with its clones, can we control the urge to wish to see them even in clones?

亡き恋人をクローン人間で補えるとしたら? 私たちはクローンでも会いたいと願う衝動を抑えられるだろうか?
[4] Way of Life / 生き方

From now, the way of life as an individual becomes important, regardless of whether it is married or single, the trend will be a “Single Life”. Both men and women depend on their opponent as before, but something interesting does not begin, and it is difficult to mature with the age of interesting jobs we get once. Since a woman began to become self-sustaining, it would be serious if a man did not become independent. The concept of a retirement age and the second life also began to be suspicious. The sense of age is beginning to change incredibly.


When one meets an opposite sex, when the interest shifts to “Culture” instead of “Love”, the age of the partner is irrelevant. Even a nine-year-old child or an aged 90-year old, if we understand that they are the owner of the knowledge and skills that we wanted to know, we are interested in and obsessed with a form different from “Love.” Even though we are with them, we don’t feel expectation or incongruity as when “Love” was the purpose. Experiencing such a transformation of sensation becomes an important condition for “Single Life” because it can be freed from the feeling specialized in the sex of women and men.


Influenced by the great fluctuations of adults’ world, there are major changes in the world of children. When the present children go out to society, it is pointed out that becoming a profession where 60% or more of them don’t exist, and 20 years later many big companies also disappear, becoming a society without a specific success model. The great sense of death also changes, and it is fully expected that “Grave” will be unnecessary after 50 years. Children are urged to develop new imagination and obliging themselves to acquire new ways of living. What do the children learn and what kind of good skill can they learn? Education for children becomes increasingly important.


As the place where we should live is also higher the level at which information technology provides “New Real”, we will be able to do “One Place of Residence” and “World Tour” at the same time. People will combine real travel and net use, and will start a completely different form of life. Changing the life style itself becomes a symbol of “Age of the Individual.”
