Expanded Cloud (tomoe gozen)

concept

本作品『Expanded Cloud (tomoe gozen)』は、2013年の初公開から改変を続けるネット・アート『Expanded Cloud』の派生バージョンです。『Expanded Cloud』は、ネット上の日々増殖する情報の中から、観客任意のキーワード入力により検索抽出された映像と音声データがリアルタイムに変形しながら混ざり合い、新たな映像を自動生成する映像受信投影システムです。それは抽象絵画の様な色彩の戯れとなり生成・再生を無限に続けます。そして、その検索キーワードを〈tomoe gozen | 巴御前〉に絞ったバージョンが本作品です。第三者の手によるネット上のファイルデータの中身には一切手を加えず、間接的かつ即時的に表層を変化させる構造、そして絶え間無い変形と融合から無限に生成されるヴァリエーションを等しく扱うことに『Expanded Cloud』シリーズの焦点はあります。

"Expanded Cloud (tomoe gozen)" is a derivative version of the net art "Expanded Cloud" which has been continuously modified since its initial release in 2013. “Expanded Cloud" is a video reception and projection system that automatically generates new video images by mixing video and audio data retrieved from the daily proliferation of information on the Internet by entering keywords at the audience's discretion, while transforming them in real time. It becomes a play of colors like an abstract painting, and it continues to be generated and reproduced infinitely, and this work is a version where the search keyword is narrowed down to "tomoe gozen | 巴御前.”
The focus of the "Expanded Cloud" series is not to modify the contents of the file data on the Internet by a third party, but to treat equally the structure of indirect and immediate surface changes, and the infinite variations generated by constant transformation and fusion.
