The 18th Japan Media Arts Festival

Posted in Places by tokyobling on February 10, 2015

If you are in Tokyo until the 15th, you might want to go and have a look at the 18th Japan Media Arts Festival at the National Art Center in Roppongi. The festival showcases international entries in various Media Arts such as robotics, cinema, interactive media, manga, anime etc. I saw a few interesting exhibitions, including (in order of the photos) 3RD (a “VR” helmet with a cellphone), a mysterious but photogenic moving machine, the “handiii” prosthetic hands, the latest Crayon Shinchan movie (Serious Battle! Robot Dad Strikes Again!), a letter with the hand drawings of Tezuka Osamu and Walt Disney (Walt had bigger hands) and a very interesting looking manga, Goshiki no fine (The Five Colored Boat about a group of traveling Circus Freaks). The entrance is free and easy to find on the second floor of the National Art Center.
