NEWVIEW CYPHER is a community activity with all kinds of xR creative expression in a freestyle. Today’s exhibition consists of two- Illustration (Part 3) and Graphics (Part 4). While expression techniques have been systematized as methods of visual communication in the context of art, these genres have new expressions and creators were born over the Internet. We develop community activities that explore expression, methods, and experiences, and we aim at global impact as a non-verbal genre of expression only.

In both genres, we’ll be revealing collaborative works with a new generation of artists! Illustrations by Wataboku and Anakone Tsukamoto/ Graphics by Rei Nakanishi, Jenny kaori and Cpnnn.

NEWVIEW CYPHER presents collaborative works with inspirational artists in the genres. For the illustration, Wataboku, whose work using the fictional character SAI has aroused a lot of attention domestically and internationally on social media, and Anabone Tsukamoto has been active on Twitter since 2015. He creates characters with various textures and colors using the discernible nature of computer graphics, and he is going to participate in the exhibition as well. Graphic design is done by Rei Nakanishi, who studied in New York and works in the fashion/culture industries. Her girls’ illustrations are specialized in fashion with the concept of “Coolness dwells inside a girl” that define the “KAWAII culture”. Jenny Kaori and Cpnnn, which offers works to and collaborates with artists both in Japan and overseas, are going to participate in this event and reveal new AR and VR expressions.

Collaboration Works

『(submerged memory』wataboku

The world view of the character “SAI”, the axis of my work, was reproduced in AR space. The walls, the floor, the desks, and the chairs are all composed of flat surfaces in the space. I imagined the suffocating atmosphere of a classroom, a space with people from the same generation being confined together as a group, and the intertwisted relationship between them.

『Spring and Shura- Introduction(mental sketch modified)』Anabone Tsukamoto

There are all sorts of “unseen” stuff around us- little things of the micro world and the spiritual things. The closest thing to us is the content of ourselves. This work expresses the phenomenon of the illusory sensations and mental movements of Kenji Miyazawa’s poetry, and at the same time makes “invisible things” visible through AR. Looking into a space interspersed with crystals, molecules, invisible ghosts, and gaze at the person who used “yourself” as a motif through AR.
