シンガポールにいくことになった。シンガポールは全スタッフはじめて。PEEK!というファッショナブルなカメラ&写真のセレクトショップができた。そのオープニングに我々のプロダクツをフィーチャーしてくれるということで、じゃあ、「どうせなら!」ってことで、ビデオインスタレーションやパーティへと広がっていった。

シンガポールの皆さん!
我々のプロダクツと音と映像がどのように受け入れられるのか楽しみです。トイカメラは今、どの国でも結構知られる存在になっていますが、どうか、トイカメラ的先入観にとらわれずに、まっさらな頭でPEEK!まで来てください。そこで見たもの、触ったもの、聞いたもの、感じたものを、どうか信じてください。僕らはいつでも、「入口」と「出口」に興味があります。ここから入ってきて、どこに出ていくか、どこから出てきて、どう入ってくるのか、そーいうことが、やっぱりいつでもドキドキ、ワクワクするのです。僕たち自身も様々なカルチャーの「入口」と「出口」を出たり入ったりして、今ここにいます。ここでの体験が、あなたにとっても、何か新しい事への、「入口」か「出口」になればハッピーです。それこそが本当のコミュニケーションですものね!ではPEEK!でお待ちしています!

We are going to Singapore. It is the first time for all of our staff to visit there. A fashionable camera & photo specialty shop, PEEK! opened. Initially, they approached us wanting to feature our products, but instead we decided “Well then, why not plan something more?” and so the video installation and the party came in being.

Hey Singaporeans! We look forward to how our products, the sounds, and the films will be accepted there. Toy cameras are known everywhere now – but please come to PEEK! without these toy camera-preconceptions; with a clear head. Believe what you see, touch, feel, and hear there. We, as humans, always have interest in “entrance” and “exit”. Entering here, where to exit, where did it come out from, where will it go into – we just cannot stop thinking about it, and we all get excited. Everyone of us has gone through the entrance of different experiences, and gone out, repeatedly and now we are here. It would make us happy if your experience with us will become your new entrance or exit. I mean isn’t this how we should communicate? I will see you at PEEK!

We then loop and mix this live, creating a distinct groove in the atmosphere. We call this, “Let Us Arouse Your Soul SHOW”. Landing in Singapore soon.

Peek! and SuperHeadz.Tokyo presents:MINI MORI VIDEO TREES

MINI MORI VIDEO TREESとは

2010年3月、NYにて開催された「IMPERFECT AS THEY ARE」が助走だった。ここではKim Gordon,Agines b, Harmony Korine, Mark Borthwick, Patrice Leconte, Chan Wook Parkなど30名を超えるクリエイターが撮影したデジタルハリネズミムー ビーを公開。

そして2010年5月、東京にて開催された「HARINEZUMI NO MORI」では、世界中から収集した膨大なデジタルハリネズミムービーを加え、全てを解体し再構築。100面を超えるモニターで、まさに森に住む生命体のように勝手に動き続けるビデオの森を演出。それはサウンドとヴィジュアルが融合した、SUPERHEADZ流のスピリチャルミュージカルであった。そして2010年10月、シンガポールにて開催される「MINI MORI VIDEO TREES」では、シンガポールの注目すべきクリエイター達の作品が加わり、全く新たなビデオの森が出現する。このプロジェクトはサーカスのように都市を旅する。そのたびにその土地の才能が加わり、森は変容していく。NY,TOKYO,そしてシンガポール。森はドンドン深くなっていく。

WHAT IS “MINI MORI VIDEO TREES”?

“IMPERFECT AS THEY ARE”, which took place in New York in March 2010, was the beginning of a dash. There, artists like Kim Gordon, Agnes b, Harmony Korine, Mark Borthwick, Patrice Leconte and Chan Wook Park showcased with 30 other artists side by side, videos each taken with Digital Harinezumi.

And the following May, “HARINEZUMI NO MORI” hit Tokyo with Digital Harinezumi videos gathered from all around the world, dissected then reconstructed to create a vast assembly of visuals. With over 100 monitors, like uncontrollable creatures in the woods, a cosmic Forest of videos was given a life. This harmony, between sound and visuals, formed a spiritual musical, SUPERHEADZ-style.

This coming October, “MINI MORI VIDEO TREES” will be taking place in Singapore, with popular Singaporean artists’ videos newly added to the bill, building an improved visual forest. As this project travels the world like a circus, it adjoins the clever talents of each area, altering the Forest. New York, Tokyo then Singapore. The Forest slowly deepens.

WHAT IS “PEEK!”?

Conceived in late 2009 by a group of like-minded camera enthusiasts wanting to share their love for cameras and photography, Peek! Pte Ltd, eventually came into being in April 2010. Based in sunny Singapore, the technological hub of South East Asia, Peek Pte Ltd serves the local arts and photography scene and hopes to expand her services to other regional markets with growing photographic communities. Peek! Pte Ltd hopes to be able to bring unique and hard to find cameras and other photographic equipment to the local and regional arts communities, and to provide a platform for enthusiasts and collectors to meet and exchange ideas. It is Peek!’s strong believe that photographs remain the preeminent method of capturing our memories, both good and bad, for posterity. With her continued efforts, Peek! hopes to eventually recapture the romanticism of photography lost with the advent of the digital age. Still a young company Peek! Pte Ltd hopes to continue moving from strength to strength in developing her capabilities in retail and distribution of niche and boutique brands from all over the world. Peek! hopes to not only support the local arts and photography scene but to also bring access and choice to the masses and revolutionise the way we view photography.
