Presence of Absence


Together with Prof. Hiroshi Ishii and Tangible Media Group at MIT Media Lab, we created the online Garden Cambridge for Ars Electronica 2020. Link

We introduced the concept of “Tangible Telepresence” with a poetic notion “Presence of Absence”. It explains our vision of how human perception of existence is connected with specific technology, as well as how negative space of “presence”, i.e. “absence” is critical when creating human experience.

Prof. Ishii and I made a video of guided tour in MIT Media Lab while we explain the idea.
