In this era, the body and words = memory became a different way of storing things. The internet has become the norm, and people’s words are stored somewhere that has no concrete place in the cloud, which becomes an extended memory. Even when the body disappears, it keeps going and continues to affect someone else.
Last Words is not a simple attempt to leave people’s souls in digital form, but it is a work that makes us think again about what it means to “live” in these times. I hope TOKYO GARDEN will give more opportunity for one to know more about this experiment.
