[Short Poem; One day of AI Painter / 詩; AI画家の一日]

“I was lonely, when I traced my memory and reproduced you as an AI image in my room, just real you appeared in front of me and could embrace me tight.”


I edited “ECKHART GARDEN 4” with “SHORT POEM; One day of AI Painter”, “PHOTO; Seeking a Wing“, “VIDEO; Space Dance in the Robotic Universe 4“, and “STORY; Imagination in the age of AI“.

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.”

Pleasure of Dancing / ダンスの楽しみ

Pleasure of Dancing / ダンスの楽しみ



We have one hypothesis that humans could free the front feet through the bipedalism and they could hold the objects by the front feet. And they could change the structure of a “Thumb” to improve its efficiency, so they could hold the objects perfectly. At last, they could develop the front feet as a “Perfect Hand”. Yes, sure, if humans couldn’t develop such a “Skillful Thumb”, probably they couldn’t design a high-degree “Chair for the Sitting”.


And, It seems that human’s movement includes not only the necessity of survival such as food security and danger avoidance but also a certain kind of unique “Over-Expectation” different from other animals influenced by the ability of “Looking Objectively”. This “Over-Expectation” will eventually go beyond living according to human’s instincts and create a diverse “Culture of Movement” in the human’s world, including sports and arts.



Why humans enjoy “Movements”? Its reason is simple, because “the movement itself is interesting” for us. It is clear when we see the daily human’s behaviors including several sports and dances in the world. Like a short-distance race, why humans would like to run as much as fast? Why we will be proud of its record to other people? Or, conversely, we will try to walk with a super-slow. Or, we will give points to a beauty of the movement and compete with it each other. Or, we will compete with a craftsmanship. Or, we will loose a balance purposely and enjoy it. In deed, both adult and child, our humans could create a lot of various forms of the movements and enjoy it with several reasons.


しかし、なぜ動くことがそんなに面白いのか? あらためて考えてみると少しもわからない。平凡な脳科学者なら、この問いに「それは、動くと脳にドーパミンという快楽をもたらす神経伝達物質が沢山分泌されるから」と答えるだろう。しかし、この答えは問いをずらしているだけだ。「動くと、脳にドーパミンが分泌されるのはなぜか?」と問う必要があるからだ。私は舞踏家として次のように見当をつけてみた。

But, why the movement is so interesting? If we think about its reason again we understand that we don’t know its reason exactly. I wonder maybe some today’s brain scientist will give the answer to us like “I know its reason, because a lot of dopamine will be secreted in the brain through the movement”. But this answer is not fine, this brain scientist avoids giving a clear answer by changing the point slightly. Because we should ask like “Why a lot of dopamine will be secreted through the movement?” So, I tried to imagine about its reason as a Butoh-Space Dance Choreographer.


  I think about its reason like that one movement invites other movements naturally as I found in my dance. I feel that a pleasure which I can find in one movement don’t close into this movement, the movement seeks other movements just like one invisible rule works there.


Its chain of the movements keeps the endless options. And over one memory corresponds to one movement. So, we can reproduce various memorial worlds by the combination of the various movements.



I think this is its essential reason why the movements are so interesting for our humans. Because “Follow-up Memories” is one of the universal desires of us. If we can seek “Follow-up Memories” through the movements with a whole body, not only into the brain, more amicably, and more vastly, sure everybody will devote to the movement world. Also, children too, if they can try to do such an experience as a game, sure they will devote it.


And, at the moment when we find one event like “Movements which we can’t recognize it as Human’s Movements” are mixed together into our usual movements, everybody will be stricken with a “Nostalgia” that we can’t express it through a language. Then, we will be surprised at its secret and we recognize that “Unknown Stage” exists behind our usual human movements. Me too, several time I experience the moment that I feel this my movement will be not by humans. In that time I am so happy specially. Why? I don’t know its reason exactly, but sure.



Our humans keep all memories of animal’s movements depend on the structure of the skeleton and our brain preserves the memories. Human’s brain is organized with 3 layers of a brain of the Reptiles, a brain of Old-Mammalia, and a brain of New-Mammalia. So, humans can judge the difference between human’s movement by the bipedalism and other animal’s movements.


Humans of a time who lived in a cave, at very wide fields on the earth, they could develop to draw many pictures of “Humans with an Animal Face” at the walls of the caves. Because humans could keep a special familiarity with the animals, so the behavior of the drawing picture of “Human with an Animal Face” must have been like some important cultural ceremony.



In my body movements and into my brain, I feel, sure, various animal’s memories should be left. When I get it I am so happy with a feeling of strong nostalgia. I will make my efforts to create several new dance movements sifting by the joints of the body for seeking its pleasure more. Why the dancers will try to make a “Strange Movements”? I think they have a same aim. Their judgments will be focused on one point, how to spread their seeking sensations by their movements? In that time they will get what kind of emotions? I know these works should be their one of secret pleasures.


It will be very interesting for the dancers to try to recall the history of the evolutions of Fish, Amphibian, Quadruped Animal, Bird, and Monkey through the combinations of the movements, not only to recall the history of human beings. With a well-keened sense, we can reconstruct the movements of Fish, Amphibian, Quadruped Animal, Bird, and Monkey by remembering its memory from “Pool of the Movements” in our brains.


しかし、何のために? そんな進化史を辿ることに何の意味があるのか? 私がそう問うたびに、私の内部の動物が私に「何か」を囁きかけてくる。私は、その囁きを聞いている内に、その理由を、「生命の進化史にうまく所属しないと、人間の進化もうまく行かないから」と考えるようになった。それは、進化史をうまく辿れた時ほど、過去からのリターンとして、より新鮮な「人間の次の動き」を与えられる気がするからだ。

But, why we try to do it? What kind of meanings we can find out through such a recalling the history of the evolution? Each time I put a question to me, one my internal animal whisper something to me. During I have heard its whispers long time, I could understand about its reason like that “If we can’t belong to the life history of the evolution well, we can’t develop our evolution well”. Because I feel that we can get more flesh “Next Humans Movement” as much as we can recall the history of the evolution well as a return from the past.


したがって、すぐれたダンサーという存在も、 このリターンの振幅の大きいダンサーであるに違いない。「すぐれたダンサー」は、ひどく懐かしい存在であると観客に感じさせると同時に、誰も見たことがない動きの世界を美の世界としてつくり出す。そうだとすれば、観客がダンサーに求めるものも、単なるダンス技術の優劣ではないこともよく理解できる。リターンの振幅の大きいダンサーとは、観客を思いがけない動きの世界に誘う者であり、その動きによって動物たちの姿も再現させ、つよい郷愁に誘う者である。

Therefore, such an “Excellent Dancer” should be a dancer who can realize this return with wide amplitude of vibration. “Excellent Dancer”, they create the unknown beautiful movement’s world which anybody don’t see before, and same time they will be a very familiar existence in front of the audiences. So, we can understand well that something the audiences want towards them will be not only the superiority or inferiority of their dance techniques. What is “Excellent Dancer” with wide amplitude of vibration? Sure, they invite the audiences to the unexpected movement’s world and they recall other animal’s figures through their dances, finally they wake up a strong nostalgia in the audience’s minds.
