The Atom Suit Project: Osaka Expo etc. / アトムスーツ・プロジェクト:大阪万博 etc. (1998)

Atom Suit Project

Yanobe continued to build devices for his own survival as part of his “Delusion”. He became aware that the point of departure for his creations was his simulated experience of time travel to the ruins of the future at the 1970 Japan World Exposition (Osaka Expo) during his early childhood. Yanobe's visit to Chernobyl enabled him to recover his sense of reality. It also was a trip to experience the primal landscape again.


自らが生き残るための装置を「妄想」の中でつくり続けてきたヤノベの創作の出発点は、かつて幼少期、大阪万博跡地で疑似体験した「未来の廃墟への時間旅行」だった。そう気付いたヤノベにとって、チェルノブイリへの訪問は現実感を取り戻すと同時に、その原風景を再体験する旅でもあった。
