5/25(Sat) 10:00 – 5/26(Sun) 18:00
Roppongi North Tower 1F
[Participation fee]
Taking the moon as its motif, Masato Tanaka's Fullmoon effect is a polyhedral structure, in which viewers are invited to enter and to insert a hand in the optical device placed at the center. The device projects images of the hand within the space and outside through the semi- transparent walls. Flooding the viewers with light and images, the work raises awareness towards the relationship between the body, light, and the perception of sight.



Tanaka was born in 1988 in Nagano Prefecture. In 2013, he graduated from the Department of Media Creation at the Institute of Advanced Media Arts and Sciences (IAMAS). Drawing on the arts, the sciences, and folklore, he creates large-scale installation works that serve as “sites of observation,” placing emphasis on experience. Both in Japan and abroad, he exhibits works whose forms challenge the definitions of media, combining elements such as engineering equipment, programs, and techniques from sculpture and architecture, as well as natural phenomena.
