Bees disappearing, A warning decree,
The planet's crying out, Let it be,
It's time for change, For you and me.

生態学的脅威により、人間、ミツバチ、その他の種が危険にさらされています。 その影響は生態系だけでなく気候変動にも波及し、生命を維持する微妙なバランスが崩れます。 私たちは生物学的崩壊と気候変動との瀬戸際にあり、地球と人間と生物の関係や価値観を、再評価する必要があります。気候変動の原因の多くは貨幣経済における終わりのない物質的欲望の蓄積です。 私たちは生活の価値観や様式を再構築する必要に直面しています。 そのひとつデジタルアートの最大の特徴は、本物のアートを無限にコピーできることです。 それは金銭崇拝による貪欲な物質的所有を破壊し、芸術の異常な金融商品価値を回復し、個々の鑑賞者とのつながりを復活させます。 このビデオは CC ライセンスに基づいて無料で配布されています。

Ecological threats put humans, bees, and other species at risk. The impact is not only on ecosystems, but also on climate change, disrupting the delicate balance that sustains life. We are on the brink of biological collapse and climate change, and we need to reevaluate the relationships and values between the Earth, people, and living things. Much of the cause of climate change is the never-ending accumulation of material desires in a monetary economy. We are faced with the need to rebuild our values and our way of life. One of the greatest characteristics of digital art is that real art can be copied infinitely. Digital art destroys the material possessions of greedy usury to reform the extraordinary monetary commodity value of art and revive the connection with the individual viewer.

Hide: Kenji Kojima's Biography

Kenji Kojima is a digital artist. Since the early 1990s, he has been experimenting with the relationships between perception and cognition, technology, music, and visual art. He was born in Japan and moved to New York in 1980. He spent his first 10 years in New York City painting with egg tempera. The personal computer improved rapidly in the 1980s. He felt more comfortable with computer art than painting. He converted his artwork to digital in the early 1990s. He developed the computer software for his artwork. But there was a big problem, the software soon did not work on the operating system. He converted his artwork to video while it was working. His ecology-based software and video art were exhibited in New York and at media art festivals around the world. After Covid-19, he could not go out to make a video. In 2021 he started a new series called "The Musical Interpretation of Paintings". At the end of 2023, he returned to his art theme of ecology. LiveCode programmer. Kenji Kojima Resume
