Realities interfere inoneanother
The fate of one film is bound up in the fate of theother,
Parallelism of time and meaning
Space has collapsed.

A composite reality out of re-assembled debris
The presence of machines, in a limited space, incorporates audience into a global surrounding of sound stimulation, text signals and visual documents.
Normal perception comes apart
Between reason and experience
The space is invaded by an unknown number of machines, The machine output in a limited space: Sound stimulates, text signals, visual manifests. A natural simultaneity.
WE THE JAPANESE PEOPLE specializes in the construction of alive electric environments, implanted and demonstrated at night in found city spaces.
WE THE JAPANESE PEOPLE is concerned with the dismemberment, reprocessing and live reconnection of salvaged sound-image-information into brutal new composites. The substances of media experience undergo explosive dissection: the elements of screen/image.tone/sub-title/message/light are dismantled and cast as volatile fragments into the occupied space.
WE THE JAPANESE PEOPLE inhabits and operates in the sitegeist of a chosen environment. Recent experiments in Berlin and Amsterdam have taken place in disused and endangered buildings, as well as churches, tunnels cinemas, carparks, monuments and docklands.
THE WORK HAPPENS MAINLY AT NIGHT WHILE THE BUILDING SLEEPS AND HAS NIGHTMARES OF ITSELF, IS BARED TO VISIONS AND HALLUCINATIONS.
WE THE JAPANESE PEOPLE extends information influence outside into the public vision with a mobile projection unit in nightly city bombardment. A puclic imposition involving the rapid dispersion of WE THE JAPANESE PEOPLE images/messages (massive scale) onto unconsulted surface architectures.
