Artist Initiative command N

"commandN" is an artist initiative organization with a core group of 16 members all dedicated to Contemporary Art. Through unique art projects and cross-disciplinary and organically formed networks such as the “powwow” talk sessions and various other activities, the group nurtures a form of communication practically engaging both sides of transmission and reception. command N takes its name from the short cut key of a Macintosh computer, and pursues a freshness, something NEW in the everyday.>

As my body is encircled by this work, I feel an ambiguous embarrassment in that my desire has taken shape. Yet at the same time a feeling of fellowship begins to emerge with those wearing these forms. Perhaps “wife san” will become a new type of matchmaking service? (Masato Nakamura)

When talking about something that is not before my eyes, as I imagine this I begin to question its meaning. Before my eyes there were little girls with wheels beneath their feet gliding along the concrete. I hope they will not forget to walk. I hope they will not become like cars. My inspiration falls from things like this. Things which have been dropped are very special. Tokyo is a place full of such lost and found.
