Art × Science IN Kyoto City Zoo : What do chimpanzees feel in arts ?Experiment using Eye Tracker in 2019

What is art to human? In this program, artists and scientists will work closely with human’s closest relative, the chimpanzee, to explore this fundamental question.

This year, we will be using modern technology to create an interactive video work which changes in accordance with the movements of chimpanzees and visitors. The exhibition attempts to go beyond examining the effects of art on chimpanzee and human, and unprecedently challenges the communication between chimpanzee and human through art.
