Dumb Type

Memorandum or Voyage


Presented for the first time at the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo in 2014, the MEMORANDUM OR VOYAGE video installation runs through Japanese group Dumb Type’s historical shows (OR from 1997, memorandum from 1999 and Voyage from 2002), revisited by Shiro Takatani.

Not a video proof, but a sensorial installation which gives new strength to a new perceptive experience, combining the Japanese collective’s past visions with contemporary technological tools. It starts with the blurred contours of OR and continues with the translucent silhouettes of memorandum to end with Darwin’s journey transcribed in Voyage, one of the first examples of messages for the future.
