A human-technology romance expressed as a performance installation. The human and technology try to become one through a garment made of skin. Technology longs for the limited twilight of human life, and humans for the infinite galaxy that technology holds. Whether they are embracing, or restraining each other, the two drown in the sea of personal distance. Humans are addicted to technology. Technology, too, is addicted to humans. How can one love technology, while loving humans? I want to discover an intermediate place between pleasure and despair, and project it onto the sexuality of we humans who live in today’s world.


Shota Yamauchi: Born 1992 in Gifu Prefecture, currently lives and works in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. Graduated from Tokyo University of the Arts, Department of Film and New Media in 2016. He continues to work from various perspectives on the theme of the relationship between technology and humans. In recent years, he has been trying to draw today’s human condition by relying on haptic motifs such as “skin” and “smell.”
