02_kochi
This book is the record of the Artist-in-Residence program conducted by the Museum of Art, Kochi in 2013. Darren Johnston, a choreographer, and visual and sound artist, was invited from the United Kingdom to create stage productions. Collaborating with a software engineer, a composer, and Japanese dancers who were chosen by audition, Johnston created experimental works combining visual images, sound effects, and computer programs, which were finally presented on stage. The book also contains Johnston’s experience of an o-henro (pilgrimage) he made during the first few days of his stay.
This book is bilingual, written in both Japanese and English.
