Power of Scale
This work focuses upon the true measurement of the scale of a space. This work is fixated on true scale in the buildings that cannot be regularly accessed and reconstructs various large and small existing spaces around us using video and fiber laser technology.
Over the latest few years, humans have become accustomed to the virtual world through technological advancements, such that when present in actual space, there is a sense of a loss of awareness to changes around one’s immediate surroundings and an interest in it.
This installation offers the opportunity to rethink the human scale through its experiences, as well as the chance to reassess the “power our sense of human scale” especially in Tokyo, where largescale development projects are in progress.
