Computing An Identity

In the installation “Memories of Self” Tetsuro Nagata plays with perceptions of self and with time delay to question the observer’s own memory and identity. On one screen, visitors can can see themselves in a mirror, but the reflection is a few seconds old, which means you look at a version of yourself from the past. In a similar way, a second projection allows the viewer to become aware of their shadow by delaying the projection, and mixing it with shadows from previous visitors. …The project looks like a comment on what it means to “be present in the Now”.
