Minimum Movement Exhibition

                     6/3-4/2022 Maho Ogawa at Umwelt gallery

About this exhibition

Minimum Movement Catalog-Exhibition activates multiple embodied communications through optical/sensory installation, as an iteration of interdisciplinary artist Maho Ogawa's online gestural lexicon, the Minimum Movement Catalog, created in collaboration with computer programmer Katherine Chuang.

The Minimum Movement Catalog project started as research about Ogawa's Japanese-ness through body language, by archiving movements from the West and East, examining the kinetic and symbolic meaning of each movement language.

In Minimum Movement Catalog-Exhibition, audiences will be invited to participate in abstract dialogues using the movement catalog as a communication tool to reveal the power of individuality, humanity, and interpersonal connection through technological and cultural barriers.
