“Hyper-Reality”: Keiichi Matsuda exhibition until April 30th, 2017 

The Art Center Nabi presents “Hyper-Reality” a multi-media installation about mixed reality in the time of saturated media by Keiichi Matsuda for COMO & HAPPY SCREEN. In the current world, the experience of individuals, personal interests, and mutual relations are constantly changed by rapidly changing technologies.

The title <hyper-reality> refers to a world where physical reality and virtual reality are naturally merged and thus difficult to distinguish. It depicts a certain aspect of human life where even personal life and identity are dominated by the system. In <hyper-reality>, the ‘self’ reveals its existential instability by an error of the system and the technology gets replaced by a human belief system.

What will be the most important value of life in the future society that will diversify with the development of technology? Art Center Nabi hopes that the presentation of “Hyper-Reality” provides an opportunity to reflect on the values to be needed in the future society and the role of the human in the coming days.
