Details for Final Day's "Dying and the Extension of Life" Appreciation
Elderly Kobe residents are invited to a special booth, where they are photographed with a high-precision 3D scanner and the data transformed into a 3D avatar (a total of 1,000 people are scheduled to participate during the exhibition). These virtual husks of people drift through the air like ghosts, and then reappear at the 12th and final station.
Marugo Ichiba Market, opened more than a century ago in 1918, was struck by the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake on January 17, 1995, but fortunately it was closed for the day and escaped the subsequent fires, surviving and becoming known as the “miracle market.” Awaiting visitors here at the final station are the elderly inhabitants of the digital world who came into being at the 1st station. On the final day of TRANS-, the proliferation of ghostly presences will fuse into a single entity.
