Open Space 2014

Outline

“Open Space 2014” is an exhibition introducing works of media art and other forms of artistic expression born out of today’s media environments, to a broad audience. Literally a beginner’s guide to media art, the exhibition features leading works from the realm of media art, artworks incorporating cutting-edge technologies, works with a critical standpoint, and in addition, projects that are currently in progress at various research institutions. All of them are being displayed along with explanatory notes designed to help the visitor gain a better understanding, according to our aim to present media art in a fun and easily accessible way.
Also on the schedule during the exhibition period are a number of related programs including talk sessions, lectures, symposia and workshops with artists and experts, as well as guided tours around the exhibits with explanations by the curatorial staff.
A space that combines ICC’s diverse functions, Open Space integrates galleries, a mini theater, and the video archive “HIVE.” Since its launch in 2006, the exhibition has been held as an admission-free event with changing contents each year. Based on the mission of ICC, it aims to function as an open platform where possibilities of communication culture and art created with the help of advanced technologies can be presented to a large number of people.

Works

The Research & Development Corner

This corner introduces research cases in academic institutions such as universities and laboratories. Future predictions created by engineers and educational institutions are presented. The Research and Development Corner also acts as a collaborative research environment for new technology.

HIVE

HIVE is the video archive of ICC. On HIVE terminals in ICC’s premise, one can access to the digitalized video archive such as ICC video art collection, interviews with various artists, and wide-ranging activities of ICC since its opening in 1997 - exhibitions, symposia, artist talks, live events and workshops. Additionally, some of the above video archive are also available in the web version of HIVE (http://hive.ntticc.or.jp/) that launched in June 2006. They are provided to the users under a Creative Commons Lisence, which allow users to make their own creative uses with the video materials for non-profits. By this initiative, we intend to disclose our resource in an open way.
