Narrative-Netsuke. We are looking at its characteristic of it carrying physical object as well as history and memory. A large geometrical sculpture represent a modern Netsuke that a person could carry its part to capture their walkthrough in a museum environment. And be able to review the entire walk afterwards. The narrative we are trying to express is, a modern life is usually full of excitements and business. Sometime our brain does not have the capacity to remember all the new experiences. Hence the new Netsuke allows us to review the moment that we enjoyed, we missed. 400 years after they were invented, they still carry our belonging(in this case, memory) for us.
As one of the person who came out with this idea, I could totally see why people may or may not like this "installation" we made. Personally, I would want to have a piece of gadget to record my daily life. We are living in a modern city, where new designs, culture and events coming up endlessly. We could miss so many interesting thing as we walking down the street. And just to imagine I could rewind my day to check every detail of it, excites me!
I understand that we are gradually starting to own the technology that can make this happen, Autographer camera, GoPro, Google glass, are the sign of the possibility becoming reality. And then, everybody would have a new way to live their life as we will not be missing anything anymore.
