No reason to get excited

Modern life leads to more depression among kids

Some weeks ago, I was attending at the MIT a presentation of Toshio Iwai work; a very smart and clever guy, but my fried made a comment on him after the presentation “that he quite not got it” and Toshio's reminder to the audience that he is actually a media artist made me suspicious to. Toshio Iwai showed all his hi-tek, interaction projects between music and visuals, including short extracts of Elektroplancton a very cute Nintendo DS game and his instrument TENORI-ON in coop with Yamaha.
