“still life” [2016]



This work was inspired by the artist’s longstanding interest in the way our perception of the world around us changes once the sounds we hear change.

In an anechoic room, an environment in which the reverberation of sound is suppressed, FUJIMOTO set up a daily life kind of space for visitors to spent time just like we normally do in real life. Making visitors realize that sounds are perceived differently than usual, or notice sounds that gradually grab their attention, the experience of this work inspires reflection on the presence and absence of sounds, including what it means to hear and not to hear things.



Related Information

This work is installed in an anechoic room, which visitors experience, one at a time. The number of visitors who can experience that installation each day is thus limited.
Reservation tickets are issued at the site, and visitors will be called in turn according to the numbers on their tickets.
Please note that, depending on the number of reservations already made when you arrive at the ICC, you may not be able to experience the anechoic room installation that day.

Appropriate for Junior High School students and above.
