This event has ended.

The Copy Travelers, an artist unit formed by three Kyoto-based artists: Yaya Ueda, Shunsuke Kano, and Teppei Sako, present a dynamic show of varied works created by manipulating copy machines, scanners, and digital cameras.
The word “copy” has many meanings – trace, duplicate, imitate, reproduce and more. The Copy Travelers choose materials as they want from those that each member individually has brought to the group, and then one will engrave, copy, peel, paste, erase, photograph etc. the object before passing it on to the other members for them to work on it. As the three members, with their own styles and methods, add whatever they feel, the work progresses to completion.
If we substitute the standard definition of a copier, “a machine that makes multiple paper copies of documents and other visual images,” with “a person who makes a work with various materials by using a copy machine multiple times” then The Copy Travelers unit acts as a copier, but a copier used in an amusing or fanciful way, like a toy or game machine, that the members could pass around to one another to process all sorts of materials that are then combined into works of art. I believe myself that the act of creating their works is in fact their art.
At this exhibit, The Copy Travelers are introducing a group of new works based on “Beyond motifs and materials and up to including a scanner, creating images of Lake Biwa and its shore.”
