Psychic VR Lab × PARCO × Loft work joint project, more than 10 participating creative talented creators
In cooperation with Psychic VR Lab (Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo) and Parco (Toshima-ku, Tokyo), Loftwork Co., Ltd. (Shibuya-ku, Tokyo) Co., Ltd. designs a new creative expression and experiences in three- Experimental project / pioneering community “NEWVIEW (New View)” started. On January 22, 2018 I published the project / community website ( https://newview.design/ ).
The tagline of “NEWVIEW” is “DESIGN YOUR ULTRA EXPERIENCE” (= design super experiences!).
With the development of technology, the world of expression will head to the rich area of three dimensions leading from two dimensional to the real world. For such a near future, this attempt aims to pursue new expressions and discover and nurture the next generation creators.
NEWVIEW designs spaces and experiences by expanding the field of expression to three dimensions by creators who embody culture in various fields such as fashion, music, video, graphics, and illustrations. We will set up experiments to create the next generation culture experience (super experience) that freely moves between real space and creative space.
As the first activity of the project, we held a meet-up event to discover and nurture creators who design new experiences in three-dimensional space from February 18 in Tokyo, Spain, Taiwan and Thailand I will. Prior to holding the event, we will release works by more than 10 creative creators who have decided to participate in this project in advance.
STEREO TENNIS (graphic artist / illustrator), Ishida Masumi (photographer), Tensuke 28 (video writer) as of January 22, Akira Otsuki (video director / video writer), Ei Erima (graphic artist / art director) More than 5 works are open to the public. We will publish the works from now on.
