Guest Artists

 

「System」

Focused on the organic behavior of the system itself, which interacts with each other and maintains equilibrium as if it were alive.This work attempts to find beauty in complex interactions by constructing a computer simulation of objects composed of primitive shapes, visualizing and exaggerating their reactions to force and the resulting impact of their movement on space.

Yuta Okuyama(Japan)
Up-and-coming young creator recommended by Daito Manabe, who has served as a jury member of the international competition since the previous one.
He belongs to the Graduate School of Science and Technology in Systems and Information Engineering, University of Tsukuba. He uses programming to create everything from system development to graphics. He is interested in expressions that present a new way of looking at things, such as extracting the beauty of simple elements from complex objects, or creating complex movements by combining simple rules.

「AD ASTRA」

We are all created from the same source to live and learn from our surroundings, but sometimes we have a dream, and it takes courage to be different and go against what everybody else is doing. We must have a clear mindset on what we want to achieve and commit to it—going through every obstacle and problem. Before going further, sometimes the biggest enemy is ourselves, faced it. We must know where we are, and we belong, and accept who we are. From here and on, be prepared to launch and shine to the stars, reminisce about our hardships, and be proud of every obstacle that we’ve been through as everybody watching us shine closer to our dream. Blasting to every universe and version of ourselves. And in the end, we are going to the next dream. Because, after all, we are the stars of our own life.
