ZENetic Computer is an interactive experience that evokes "self-awakening," a particular cognitive response to processing reality via subliminal consciousness. It uses stories portrayed in sumie (ink painting), haiku and kimono which display features of Eastern philosophy, and Zen in particular. Museum visitors create their own sumie and stories on large rice paper screen, while learning about Zen, Japanese art, and themselves. The artist guides visitors toward an altered mindstate. It is the collaborative work of Seigo Matsuoka, a director of Editorial Engineering Labs in Tokyo, and Naoko Tosa, a research fellow at the Center for Advanced Visual Studies at MIT. Music by Toshinori Kondo, an improvisational Jazz trumpeter.
