Hackathon / CALAR.ink
The five-member team “CALAR.Ink” comprised of Chiaki Kohara (artist), Kaiho Tadaishi (architect), Teruaki Tsubokura (media artist), Yuya Urita (front-end engineer), and Satoshi Eto (web engineer), was formed at the hackathon event “3331α Art Hack Day 2015” in summer 2015, with the aim to create a form of technology art with strong analogue elements. By carrying out experiments that explored a new form of live painting and a new way of enjoying art that leads to “shared feelings” between the artist and the audience, the team realized Fateful Encounter, a work created through technology and unintended accidents, presented in real-time. It won the Grand Prix at the hackathon in the Art category. The newest version of this work will be exhibited at the former Miwa Junior High School in Hitachi-Omiya.
