Yuki Onodera "Darkside of the Moon No.1" (2020)

"Space cans" that confine the universe in a can, a device that warps the space-time of Jomon to the space mother, a corset that expands the function of organs so that human beings can live in the universe, characters abandoned from the market are on the moon There are video works that wander around the universe and works that present ontological problems with the concept of "the backside of the moon" as an eternal metaphor. Now that the change of existing values is urgently needed, we will unravel the relationship between humans and technology and the evolution of humankind presented by "2001: A Space Odyssey" through these works.
