Coming from Torquay, England, Matt Mahdavi is currently in the midst of a guest residency at 3331 Arts Chiyoda. Exhibited in room B108 of the former junior high school is the artist's interactive 'Terminal' installation, a work based on his research into simulation theory and the nature of reality through image manipulation. Aiming to express the 'weirdness' of reality and the glitches found in it, Mahdavi says he spent an entire week without sleep after arriving in Tokyo, wandering around Akihabara in a daze while looking for installation components – a process that should make for interesting work. Matt will be adding a new disk with a singular image daily, so head over to play with 'Terminal' – the instructions for which can be viewed here – by January 6, when an exhibition concluding his stay in Tokyo will begin.

One of the best installation I've seen this year. Thought provoking and revealing images, frustration is evident. I can't wait to see the resulting exhibition


Interesting interactive installation in unusual venue.  Love the images  -  bright, quiet (lonely or thoughtful?), manic, associative works capture the contradictions of the area.  Look forward to seeing final works in Jan.
