BAKERU is an experiential video installation which used motifs inspired by the Tohoku region's ancient festivals and traditional events. Visitors standing in front of the screen wearing masks would find their reflections transformed into something different. This work is designed to offer viewers the strange but fascinating and delightful experience of metamorphosing into someone else; into a nonhuman being. The work seeks to preserve for posterity Tohoku's indigenous cultural traditions by re-examining them from a contemporary perspective, and presenting them as completely novel and interactive forms of artistic expression.
