Matt Mahdavi: Terminal
Time Out says
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.
