Often I imagine the city that doesn’t have any visual and auditory symbols around us. But we cannot remove any of mechanisms constructing our world. And we cannot exert even a little influence on the media that were made by those mechanisms. If we have no power to reform our environment, we need to find the possibility of meditation using the signifiers filled the cities. ‘Meditation 1008~’ is a practical and alternative meditation that can only work once you let yourself into the sorcery-like symbols.
Numerous symbols are compressed into the work. The compressed symbols are expressed irregular patterns of sound through the three of audio-visual installations, and the sound transforms and visualizes the waves sinking inside. The reproduced media through compressions and suppressions provide more possibilities of thinking and choices than the values contained in it’s own form. Through these processes, ‘Meditation 1008~’ can be a right tool for meditation. .
