“Songs for oblivion fishermen VII” is an interactive audio-visual installation created in collaboration with Takashi Aoki, exhibited by invitation at Tokyo Designers Week 2010.
"A tiny screen hovers in the dark centre of the space, an obsolete pocket television displaying a computer generated tropical rainforest vista. The image is dwarfed by a wall of oversized “sound system” speakers that fill the far end of the interior. Upon entering, the visitor is greeted by the semi-realistic whistles and chirps of a generative synthetic rainforest soundscape. As they move towards the screen their proximity interferes with the algorithm to morph the relaxing audio menagerie into a solid wall of harsh digital noise, losing the forest view to visual static."
A tongue-in-cheek literal realization of the festivals “Environment” theme and a reflection on humanities role within the natural world. “Songs For Oblivion Fishermen VII” was selected as one of the Dezeen x Design Association container competition winners.
