Carbon Neutral by Stationary Nomad and Tea Culture - Live Chat Event with Media Artist Yoichi Ochiai
Media Artist Yoichi Ochiai will participate in the Event Chat from 5pm - 6pm
In 1980, Nam June Paik coined the term “Stationary Nomad,” a concept of working in various places on the earth to reduce energy consumption toward a carbon-neutral society. An advocate of the concept, he foresaw an era where artists expressed themselves on electronic canvases and the spread of the current non-fungible token (NFT). Forty years later, in this post-corona world, the idea of nomads is fast approaching to be a pervasive model.
Japan has been a forest ecosystem and its culture of tea has increased the value of the regional ecosystem. I will revisit the concept of nomads as a norm which was suggested to tackle the problems of materiality and temporality that haunted the 1970s and see how it can be applied as a solution to the calculated nature ecosystem of today.
