デジタル掛け軸

My name is Akira Hasegawa. However, that is not so important because I do not know all of your names. The name of my art is the Digital Kakejiku project, or D-K.
That is not important either, because by its nature, D-K is neither exclusive nor final.
D-K is not mine. It is ours. It enriches us as humanbeings without differentiating between our names, ages, races and ways of thinking.
D-K transcends time and space.

* This sensitizing instrument Hasegawa created is entitled D-K (digital kakejiku).
D-K lights up a large area (architectures or natural surroundings) with random sequences of abstract-painting-like images. At a glance it looks still, but when you look away for a minute and the image is totally transformed. It consists of 30 frames/second, and you perceive it just like the motion of the sun setting.
D-K's abstract-patterns and colors are created by capturing cosmic noise and encoding it into digital data. When reproduced on the computer monitor using the software Hasegawa made, it turns into an artistic masterpiece.
