Molecular Biology has developed greatly and has made a great contribution to our world since the DNA genetic model was revealed to be a double helical structure in 1953. If we can express amicable but mysterious relationships between the body and the environment as “Visible Information” like DNA, we can realize same kind of revolution, then the outcome goes beyond the art world, affecting the whole society. And, we believe that we can make a revolution similar to Molecular Biology. we would like to shoulder one part of it through our Space Dance.

1953年にDNAの遺伝子モデルが二重螺旋構造である事が明らかにされて以来、分子生物学は大きな発展を遂げ、私たちの世界に偉大な貢献をもたらすようになりました。私たちは、もし身体と環境の間で交わされている親密な、そして謎に満ちた関係をDNA のような「見える情報」として表現できるなら、その成果はアートの世界を超え、社会全体に影響を与えるものとなり、分子生物学と同様な革命を起こすことができると信じています。私たちは、スペースダンスを通して、その一端を担うことができると考えています。

If we can re-understand “Dance” as “Creating Posture“, we can cultivate several new jobs in our society. “Dance” is not so popular for the general public but “Creating Posture” is very popular for them, because everybody, every day, every moment, they are trying to do “Creating Posture” by unconsciously to get the comfortable body condition in their life. 


So, even if the general public don’t want to study “Dance” so much, but they want to study how to get the good way for making “Creating Posture”. In this meaning, the dancers can help them, because basically the dancers are the experts for “Creating Posture”. So, the dancers, if they want, they can find a new world to connect with them. 



[1] Mission / ミッション

The essence of Space Dance is to digitize the “Amicable Relatioship between Body and Space, or between Body and Object” as the “Tacit Knowledge” using “Body-Space Model“. And, it is to visualize the “Lost Memory” which is recovered in that time as the “Image“. We develop “Body-Space Model” for digitizing the tacit knowledge, then we design its process as various objects, spaces, and images that can contribute to the improvement of Earth Culture and the creation of Space Culture.


As a base to return the results of its design to the society, we are planning to open “SPACE MUSEM” with the following contents and activities at several cities around the world. And, we organize “SPACE DANCE SCHOOL” in SPACE MUSEUM and through these activities we educate the “New Talented People” who will work for developing a new social system for a new era.

[2] Concept / コンセプト

– intellectual Craving for Knowledge and Creation / 知と創造への欲求 –

In the era of our information society, if we leave it, we easily forget that we are “physical presence“. We open “SPACE MUSEUM” based on the feeling as “the humans live as being existence with a body” in order to rethink the necessary themes to live better and build a new method for it.

ほっておけば、自分が「身体的存在」であることも容易に忘れていく私たちの情報化の時代。『スペースミュージアム』 では、「人間は身体をもつ存在として生きている」という実感をベースに据え、よりよく生きるために必要な問題を考え直し、その方法を新しく構築します。

Our wish for knowledge and creation has created art and design, and pursued science and technology, then we could develop our human’s society. So, in our today’s world what makes a wish for knowledge and creation?


For example, Into the “Mysterious Microcosm” created by a piece of special cloth called Space Tube, we can make a floating easy. And we can experience the condition of pseudo-zero gravity and the soft cloth of Space Tube wrapping our body brakes our body balance, but soon it supports us gently. Also, since the shape of the space is decided by how we move into Space Tube, we can get a very nice “Nostalgic Feeling” as if we return back to the mother’s womb. Also, inside of Space Tube we can see a very “Beautiful Space Formation” which we have never seen before.

例えば、スペースチューブという一枚の布がつくりだす「不思議な小宇宙」では、ふわりと身体が浮き上がり、擬似的無重力の状態を体験でき、身体を包むやわらかな布は、身体のバランスを崩したかと思えば、すぐにやさしく支えてくれます。 そして、スペースチューブの中では自分がどう動くかで空間のかたちが決まる為、お母さんの胎内に帰ったような「懐かしい感覚」がします。同時に、内部ではこれまで見たこともないような「美しい空間造形」を見ることが出来ます。

Such the experiences of pseudo-zero gravity and an unexpected space wake up our primitive feeling and awareness, and give us a new recognition about our body and environment. The moment when a new door of the recognition is opened is “Time of New Discovery” and it is also the moment when “Wish for Knowledge and Creation” is born.


●What is SPACE TUBE? / スペースチューブとは?

SPACE TUBE is “Soft Space” used a special elastic cloth. It is installed suspended by the ropes at a certain height from the floor and developed for the Space Dance Performance and for general public including the kids. On April 2001 SPACE TUBE could debut at The United Nations in New York and on 2004-2006 through the collaborative research together with Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency(JAXA) in Japan it could realize a social debut officially.


Space Tube has been estimated as a Boundary Object. Boundary Object, this means an “Object which exists on the Bound.” Both children and adult, both general people and a specialist, both a person who belongs to scientific fields and a person who belongs to artistic fields, they can feel same interests towards Space Tube with common sense.


SPACE TUBE is also criticized as “IKEBANA in the SKY – Flower in the Sky” and it is floating in the air with an unique form that no one has seen yet. The characteristics of SPACE TUBE are four, “Closed Space“, “Various Postures“, “Nostalgic Feeling“, and “Unexpectedness“. And at the exhibition it is constituted by “4 Rooms” such as “Balnce and Posture“, “Light and Darkness“, “Real and Virtual“, and “Contemplation and Healing“.
