I'm pleased to announce that Hirakawa's "Double Dream(2010)", that I made music for, won the second prize in the International Video Art Festival «Now&After’12» at Moscow Museum of Modern Art.

“Double Dream” is a project designed for the Aichi Triennale 2010 “Arts and Cities”.
I am creating a site-specific video installation for the Nakagawa-Canal,Nagoya,Japan.
Through my work I try to bring out the ” Genius loci” hidden in the Nakagawa-Canal.
A standstill water surface that looks like a puddle and a warehouse with a shuttered facing the canal are like a connection to this “Genius-Loci”.
These two elements create a special atmosphere that I call “Sleeping in a closed space”.
I created two characters to represent the “Genius-loci” of the Nakagawa-canal.
One of the characters is a man sleeping in a boat and the other is a woman sinking in the canal.
Each character keeps dreaming they awoke from sleep. Like in a loop.
