The installation LIFE – fluid, invisible, inaudible... created in collaboration with Ryuichi Sakamoto commissioned by Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media [YCAM] in 2007, based on enormous materials of a magnificent multimedia opera LIFE by Ryuichi Sakamoto premiered in 1999. Modeled on various factors in the opera, this installation is conceived with expressions reflecting today’s world, a new element which uses previously unused material has been included in addition to the original material. It is an experiment to fuse sound and image as a new kind of artistic synchronization, suggesting opening our sensation to vague and unrecognizable realms, and the artists try to get its message across to a wide variety of people in today's world.

1999年に制作された坂本龍一オペラ《LIFE》の膨大な資料をもとに、2007年に山口情報芸術センター[YCAM]の委嘱で坂本龍一と共同で制作したインスタレーション《LIFE - fluid, invisible, inaudible…》。 オリジナルの資料に加え、さらに現在の世界を反映させた表現の新たなインスタレーションが構想され、別の新しい要素が考案された本作品は、不確定で認識できない曖昧な領域へ感覚を開くことを示唆した、サウンドと映像が融合される実験であり、現在の世界へのメッセージでもあります。
