This presents four works themed on “Neighbors to Bugs” inspired by the phenomenon of bugs.Normally, bugs are seen as digital errors, but sometimes they can bring about new discoveries or values.The common notions and possibilities of the body are challenged by reusing and expanding, not fixing, the various bugs around us in the natural world and people.

The frailty of the body and soul is thought to stem from a variety of factors, including physical, cognitive, social, and psychological.To understand the increasingly complex health situation and detect the early signs of disease, the Institute for Geriatrics and Gerontology is carrying out research using digital devices such as smartwatches.What will we be able to measure or see with the latest technology? This exhibit presents the latest work in frailty.

The walking assistance robotic wear, “curara,” was developed jointly with AssistMotion, a venture company from Shinshu University.They have developed a robot that can be worn like clothing in order to achieve a society where everyone can freely walk using their own feet.The “curara" service and an image of a future where as many people as possible can use it on a daily basis are presented at the exhibition venue. There are also events that allow visitors to experience the actual device.
Held by art communicators.
