■Background of the opening of “One Too Ten NFT STORE”
Wantooten has reviewed Japanese traditional culture, history, and nature, such as the immersive art experience “One Tooten Nijo Castle Night Party” at Kyoto’s World Heritage Site, and “ENU”, a web service that connects traditional crafts producers with fans who want to support, and has created various projects that combine tradition with creativity and advanced technology.
We will propose the future of Japanese culture by releasing “Earth & Human”, which combines Japanese tradition and innovative technology, to the NFT digital content market, which is attracting attention as a “new means of value distribution”. Wantooten will convey to the world the “aesthetic sense” unique to Japanese culture, starting with this work, which combines Ebizo Ichikawa’s dance and advanced technology.
■Earth & Human Work Concept
Based on the motif of the new work “Earth & Human” by kabuki actor Ebizo Ichikawa, this work attempts to recognize the world by focusing on the relationship between humans and nature through subjective perception and objective perception. Based on Japan’s oldest dance, “Sanbaso”, this work is a program that makes you feel the shamanism that God owns on the earth as a festival such as a ceremony and prayer to pray for a rich harvest by “stepping on” the earth. Based on the background of such original works and the animism, including the eight million gods that have taken root since ancient time in Japan, the relationship between humans and nature, and thus the various lives that live in them, is depicted through perception.
Moreover, it aimed at the update of the interpretation of a multifaceted world based on a Cubist multi-viewpoint while being inspired by the multi-naturalism seen in the cultural anthropology by using the concept “Ring world” of Jukscuul who was a living thing and philosopher in Germany as a clue. Based on the iconography captured and decomposed by more than 100 4K cameras, through a massive capture system that generates 3D data in real time, we tried to reconstruct it in a multilayered circle of 3D virtual space that changes dynamically and a modern information environment called the Internet.
“Earth & Human VR” is a work through subjective perception of a single point of view. Using the characteristics of VR, the camera position is fixed and logged in to the virtual audience. This draws 360 degrees while the perceived world changes by grasping the space from the subjective perception of the viewer individual. In other words, it is positioned as a work that recognizes the passive world based on the “human-centered” perception of the viewer individual.
“Earth & Human LIVE” is a work that is at odds with VR works and through objective perception. A virtual camera in a 3D space freed from physicality is depicted by relaying to various perceptions while “possessing” various life such as living organisms. Unlike VR, video works with limited angles of view are composed of a collection of multilayered perceptions of various life individuals, so to speak, “multicentrth” perception, regardless of the viewer’s intentions.
This work has been perceived in various forms under many viewing environments such as mobile, PC, sns, etc. live streamed through the Internet, which is a modern multilayered information environment. In addition, by converting to NFT, it will be updated semipermanently and dynamically by continuing to add multilayered meanings to blockchain technology and connect the ecosystem of information environments that transcend space and place. And I believe that we will continue to draw through perception the question of how to overcome and continue to live with others, while emforging that it exists in a variety of ways while accepting that diverse life cannot be understood in a networked and divided world.
