RECAST: AKIHABARA aims to stimulate curatorial propositions in relation to visual experimentation, relational aesthetics and global economies simulated by consumerism.
During an artist residency at 3331 Arts Chiyoda, Tokyo, I engaged Japanese residents in sculptural mould making production to cast locally produced outmoded technology. I then assembled and photographed the cast objects in public spaces throughout Akihabara, a retail hub renowned for sales of electronic goods.
The exhibition presents a series of photographs that document these relational events. Throughout the exhibition period I will recast the objects presented in the photographs to create a fluid art space where the relationship between thinking and making is open-ended.
