GADGET OK! Device Art in Japan Exhibitions

D|MA2 (Device | Machine Arts X Design | Media Arts)

Device Art challenges traditional paradigms of art. The borders between art and other related fields are no longer clear-cut. Device Art explores new ways of bridging art, design, technology, science and entertainment by using both latest innovations and everyday technology. It also introduces elements derived from the Japanese
traditional culture such as the appreciation of tools and materials. Device art is often playful and can be realized as gadgets. Some of them are even turned into commercial products meant to make our lives a little more interesting and to help us understand what it means to live in a media society. While it reflects elements of the Japanese culture, Device Art is also influences by worldwide phenomena in art, design, fashion, architecture, etc, and the do-it-yourself technology movement.
