This exchange took place between the Cité des Sciences and Japan. The first image of a wooden dragon from a temple in Fukui, Japan was transmiited to Paris by our Japanese partners. The second image of Joël de Rosnay, Director of International Relations at the Museum, in a virtual reality helmut was transmitted to Japan where it came back transormed by a Japanese artist. The the last image was the transformation of the Japanese image by a French artist. The Japanese had a hard time understanding why anyone would want to kill a dragon, the symbol of good luck.
This photo of an architectual detail from a temple in Fukui was the first image sent from the Video Art Festival in Fukui, Japan.
