ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
作品説明 Introduction アヨハタ市(AYOHATA City)で200年以上続く奇祭「思考機械大興祭(DAY OF THE CLOCKWORK BODHI BRAIN)」。 年に一度、人々は各家庭伝来の「変換機」を身に纏い、太古に五次元時空に置かれたと言われる「思考機械(CLOCKWORK BODHI BRAIN)」へのアクセスを試みる。それがこの世界を「思考し続けている」事を讃え、日々の感謝を捧げる。
"DAY OF THE CLOCKWORK BODHI BRAIN" (思考機械大興祭) is a strange festival that has continued for more than 200 years in AYOHATA City. Once a year, people wear "conversion machines" (変換機) handed down from generation to generation and from family to family. They attempt to access the "CLOCKWORK BODHI BRAIN," (思考機械) which is said to have been placed in the fifth dimension of space-time since prehistoric times. They praise and appreciate it in hopes that it keeps this world "thinking".
