マンモス・プロジェクト: 20世紀のロボット・マンモス(プロトタイプ)
2004-05 136cm×87cm×260cm
鉄、産業廃棄物

愛知万博で幻となった「マンモス・プロジェクト」。屑鉄などのスクラップや産業廃棄物の集積により、体長20m、重さ200t、ディーゼルエンジンを動力とする巨大な4足歩行のロボットが歩き出す。黒煙をはきながら愛知万博会場に出現し、巨大ヘリコプターで名古屋市街へと空輸され、港にむかい、さらには巨大ボートで一路シベリアへ。そして氷漬けのマンモスが発掘された永久凍土へと運ばれ埋葬されるという、20世紀の人類の肥大化した欲望によって生まれたタイムカプセルプラン。

計画中止後も学生たちの協力により、仮想プロジェクトとなってジオラマ模型展示(2004年)、「子供都市計画」(2004-05年)では氷漬けの《マンモス・パビリオン》へと展開され、このコンセプトは継承されていった。
MAMMOTH PROJECT: MAMMOTH ROBOT 20TH CENTURY (prototype)
2004-05 136cm×87cm×260cm
steel, industrial waste

The Mammoth Project, the fantastical manifestation at Expo 2005 Aichi.* A giant quadruped walking robot, built out of accumulated steel scrap and industrial waste, 20 meters long and weighing 200 tons, and powered by a diesel engine. Spouting black smoke, it would make an appearance at the Expo site, be transported by a huge helicopter to the Nagoya urban area and then to the port, where it would be loaded onto a huge boat straight to Siberia. Finally, it would be carried to the permafrost excavation site of the frozen mammoth and buried there, a time capsule plan born of the bloated ambition of twentieth century humanity. Once the project was called off, university students assisted in turning it into a virtual project, displayed as a diorama model (2004); and then in Kodomo Toshi Keikaku (The City of Children, 2005), it was developed into the frozen Mammoth Pavilion, and in that way the concept was preserved.

* The world's fair held in Aichi Prefecture, near the city of Nagoya.
