Screening of works from International Projection Mapping Competition
In the 10th year of the 1-Minute Projection Mapping Competition, one of the world's largest international projection mapping competitions, the 19 finalist works were projected in the Seitoku Memorial Picture Gallery in Meiji Jingu Gaien.
After reviewing the candidates, eight domestic and foreign experts decided on the winner for each prize last September. The Grand Prix (Governor of Tokyo award) went to EPER DIGITAL from Hungary which presented a refreshing performance combining simple colors and 3DCG synchronized with fast-paced music. DecideKit from Thai won two prizes, the semi-grand prize, and the audience award, for their beautiful work with the motif of the growth and change of butterflies. Germany's RESORB won 3rd place (Jury's special prize) with an ambitious work that used AI algorithms to express the generation of life. Ukraine's Kurbas Production presented the beautiful ethnic patterns that externalized the painful situation surrounding their nation and achieved the TOKYO TOKYO award.
In the second half of the projection, a new work by THE FOX, THE FOLKS from Indonesia, who won the Grand Prix last year, and artwork by Yuta Okuyama, an up-and-coming young creator recommended by Daito Manabe, will be screened. Both are young creators in their 20s who will lead the next generation, so please pay attention to these two works shaking up the art world.

THE FOX, THE FOLKS
We are all born from the same source, we all live and learn from our surroundings.
Sometimes it takes courage to dream and to do something different, something no one else is doing.
We must have a clear idea of what we want to accomplish and make the utmost effort to face any difficulties or problems.
First, we must realize that our greatest enemy is ourselves and face it.
Accept where you are, where you belong, and who you are.
Let us be prepared to start moving toward the stars, to shine, and to contemplate the difficulties ahead.
And take pride in the fact that we have overcome all difficulties.
Everyone sees us shining to get closer to our own dreams.
We break out of our molds in every area.
And then we move on to the next dream. Because, after all, we are the shining stars of our own lives.
We focused on the organic behavior of the system itself, which interacts with each other and maintains equilibrium as if it were alive.
This work attempts to find beauty in complex interactions by constructing a computer simulation of an object composed of primitive shapes, visualizing and exaggerating its response to force and the resulting movement's effect on space.
