100th Installation of D-K, Digital Kakejiku
It was in the foot of Mount Fuji, spring ski run in Fujiten Resort!In the summer of 2007
, I visited a ski resort, Tsugaike in Japan Alpen. I had been sent by Akira Hasegawa to shoot D-K installation site during the rave party site produced by S.O.S.Mother -www.mother.bz-.
In that summer, I could not capture any good images of D-K installation as the D-K lights were not projected to any beautiful nature surface or old architecture. The most beautiful image I could capture there was only facial expression of those young people walking on the road. The music played by DJs from Europe did not touch my heart and I left the site right after I could capture D-K live installation images there.
This time at the foot of Mount Fuji, the Fujiten Resort where people enjoy skiing in the winter time, Akira Hasegawa had a chance to project D-K lights to a huge surface of bangalow at the ski run. The width of 40-meters long.
On 1st of May, 2009, in the evening, I could arrive the site where Akira had been installing D-K toward the surface of the bangalow. He designed the composition of D-K pictures on the building and intructed to his assistants who adjusted the projection position on the building.
He composed all the minute position of projection lights and his assistants followed his instructions.
In the afternoon of May 2nd, young people from cities arrived to this rave party site, at the foot of Mount Fuji. The party was called 'GROUND BEAT' supported by Mother.bz
. Thousands of people who love dancing in night bar in Roppongi, Aoyama, Shibuya in Tokyo come to this site and make camp on the ski run, enjoy barbecue and chat with friends in day and night. They stay 2 nights here and dance under the sun and the moon for 2 days.
The first evening, on May 2, the D-K lights were appeared on the buildings. I could see those lights from the top of ski run hill.
I walked down the hill and approach to the building where D-K lit up the surface.
I stayed in front of the building and captured images for few minutes in video. Then I climbed on the tower where projectors of D-K were installed and I stood still with my camera to shoot D-K moving lights images for a while.

-DK(Digital-Kakejiku,the art of 1 million images projected by several projectors continuously, at random. You will never see again the same image that you have just seen in front of yourself. The art of 1,000 years: the projections of 1 million images abstact in the computer, they are projected towards a big screen of the nature like mountain and river, buildings as a temple, a cathedral and skyscrapers in the city. An image is superimposed on the other that is projected successively and the two luminous images changes their appearance in every moment, superimposed on the screen that you can see just ONCE a ONE thousand year !!
