Central East Tokyo 2023

Media art workshop "Photophone - Let's make a device that listens to light"

Pre-registration event


A photophone is a primitive device that converts the wavelength of light into the wavelength of sound. The visible light communication device created by Graham Bell before he invented the telephone has been made into a simple kit that can be assembled without the need for soldering. In this workshop, after making the device, we will go out into the city of the CET area and do a tour to listen to the city's lights (you can take the kit home with you).

28.Oct.2023 and 29.Oct.2023

Sound artist/improviser. Combining a piano and a self-made device, he performs and exhibits a roundabout and restless feeling. She is concerned about the gap between the interaction of tools and instruments, their physicality, and the narrative that arises from that gap.

In 2005, he started working as a design unit called "gift_" in Ebisu, Tokyo and opened a gallery shop called gift_lab as a laboratory and a small place for cultural exchange.
Toshikazu Goto designs space and furniture, and Fumiko Ikeda handles project curation and styling.
Since the early 2000s, he has actively participated in projects such as TDB (Tokyo Designers Block), CET (Central East Tokyo), DesignTide Tokyo, etc., simultaneously transforming the city's gaps into galleries.
After the Great East Japan Earthquake, he started "Yamanoya" in the Echigo-Tsumari area (Tokamachi City, Niigata). Three years later, he also moved his base in Tokyo to Kiyosumi Shirakawa and is currently practicing a double local life in these two bases.
