The Play

Rowing handmade boat or a "house" boat and documented with photographs and videos.
I miss performance art in 60-70s, simple but looks fun.

Japan Local Waters, Ecological Self Defense 
He is an artist and built his company about Ocean Earth. Environmental, political, social impact, and he actually go to UN press conference to reveal his idea. So he was joking like President Abe can see his works.

He presents a new installation about the MONIAC a hydraulic device designed by economist Bill Philips in 1949, using a flow of water to demonstrate national economic processes. The Central Bank of Guatemala acquired a model so he included the irony to put the supermarket casher dividers that has their ads on it at the bottom of the machine. 
Michael was at the event and gave a little talk about the work.

Title: Liquidity Inc. 2014
>Hito Steyerl is a German filmmaker, visual artist, and author in the field of essayist documentary video. Her practice uniquely articulates the contemporary status of images, and of image politics, in the digital age.
>ヒト・スタヤルは、映像、美術、ドキュメンタリー映像を手掛けるドイツ人の作家。デジタル時代における、映像が持つ現代的意味や政治性といった要素を、ユニークな手法で際立たせる。グローバルなコミュニケーション・テクノロジー、― およびそれに付随する画像流通を介して浮かび上がるグローバルな関係性 ―、が政治、文化、自意識などにもたらす多大な影響力といった問題が、作品の核心となっている。
Superflex (founded in 1993, live in Copenhagen)
video installation
Flooded Mcdonalds (2009)
どっから水が?とか どこの店舗が撮影の許可をだしたのか?、と素朴な疑問が浮かんだが、それよりも「ファーストフード店」が沈んで行って、ハンバーグやコークや、ドナルドの人形が倒れて流れて行って、壁の「今月のベストの店員さん」、の写真が映し出される、ことに対して、「経済消費活動、ってなんだろう?」というむなしさに襲われた.
