Keynote by Yoichi Ochiai

This keynote session by Yoichi Ochiai, Executive Director of The New Japan Islands, is based on Geo-Technologies Based on Local DNA and Philosophy, an official SXSW session planned for SXSW 2020 blended with The New Japan Islands 2020 concept of Cycles of Hyper Intuition. Yoichi will explain why this concept came to be with two interpretations of Mingei (folk art). Yoichi will further delve into the expansion and reinterpretation of Mingei by digital technology.

Yoichi will discuss how we experience things in this new reality of a muddy stream of uncontrollable and countless images and information traveling across the internet and a super resolution of 32 megapixel image on a 12.4m x 7m large screen. How does it make us feel internally when Hyper Intuition and digital nature exceeds the bounds of the human ability to perceive? Yoichi will propose a new view of the future and physicality where digital and nature become fused.

Instead of the Keynote in our March 22 broadcast, we will be providing a link to the virtual version of the SXSW official session, Geo-Technologies Based on the Local DNA and Philosophy.
