Shiro Takatani – Between Nature And Technology
© Idéale Audience
Across Europe and Japan, this film covers over three decades of Shiro Takatani’s artistic journey through his installations, theatre and dance performances. Takatani and his collaborators (including composer Ryuichi Sakamoto) explain the driving principles behind his work where nature and people are observed through modern tools. Takatani uses technology to improve our understanding of our environment: enhancing infinitely small organisms, showing large scale galaxies, creating an interaction between performers/dancers with cameras and large screens. Carefully selected performances – remarkably filmed – demonstrate the evolution of his work.
