基礎や基盤を意味する インフラ INFRAという名前は、アーティスト、参加者にとっての新しい基盤を意味しています。

Berlin’s 3hd Festival and Tokyo-based EBM(T) Gallery are combining forces to work on インフラ INFRA 2017 in Tokyo, running August 19 to 26.

An ambitious festival of art, music, and thought in the digital age, the program unfolds in museums, galleries, clubs, and online.

The name インフラ INFRA is a play on the abbreviated form of ‘infrastructure,’ and breaks new ground for participants.

Artists

Hitoyo Nakano

Hitoyo is a hive mind which is based on the data from the Twitter account “SAZAE BOT” or an anonymous virtual artist who calls oneself “A time traveler from 2061”.

Dambi Kim

Dambi Kim is the host of Meditative Sounds (冥想曲) delivering the serenity and transience of life through tea, incense, words and audio. By playing a Korean traditional black zither, called the geomungo, Kim was first introduced to the way of tea in 2014. Philosopher Sen Rikyu’s wabi-cha teaching was a major inspiration when she fell in love with Chinese tea during a sojourn in Europe, which she now studies along with incense under a Chinese tea Master.

Lyra

Lyra is a singer, composer, and performance artist. She studied classical music in upstate New York, and has called Berlin home for the last three years. In her solo work and collaborations, she embodies the search for sensual mysticism and transcendent emergence of the self within the emotional confines of global capitalism and our ever-more-heavily corporatized digital realms. In both her practices, Lyra commits to feeling, empathy, and listening as the central pathways to self-actualization as well as any affirmative, collective action.
