OSHIBE

Oshibe plays sounds, has lights and entertains you

Oshibe, meaning stamen in Japanese, is a playful interactive music and lighting sculpture. It represents optimistic elements of life, for instance, plants, eggs, light and the moon.
When you put a semi-transparent egg on one of five stamens, Oshibe plays different ambient sounds, depending upon the particular combination of stamen. Audiences can create their own sounds, using the locations and numbers of eggs. This interactive sculpture creates a therapeutic and positive atmosphere differently inspired by everyday life.
The idea is inspired by a Japanese 'animistic' view of life. Animism, which is the belief that everything has a spirit, including everyday objects such as trees and plants, is a belief in Japan that has existed since ancient times.

 

おしべは植物、卵、光、月など、様々なポジティブな要素を題材に作られたインタラクティブアート作品です。
半透明の卵を巣のような形のボディに乗せると、光を放ち、音を奏でます。5つのくぼみにはそれぞれ違った抽象的な音が入れられており、その組み合わせによって違った音を楽しむ事ができます。
日本の神道などに見られるアニミズム信仰の、さまざまなものに魂が宿っているという思想にインスピレーションを受けて制作されました。
