Something Like Me / About Seeing Things – Akihiko Taniguchi

Latest in the series of productions by Japan's BRDG label and Hip Land Music is the performance by Akihiko Taniguchi at the DMM VR Theatre in Japan titled 'Something Like Me / About Seeing Things'. The performance is a culmination of Akihiko research into VR and 3D scanning, rendering in real time and synchronized with real world time.

The project/projection is a 3D scanned Akihiko and its texture that covers the surface of his  body scanned on the 10th of February 2016. Hence, Akihiko is presented as himself on 26th March 2016 controlling himself on the 10th February 2016. In addition, while exploring these contradictions of reflected+realtime image of oneself, Akihiko is also interested in how computer efficiency, in this case far clipping planes of 3d software and software deleting distance objects as well as their "backs" (backface culling), alters perception of oneself through reflection.
