[Project]Meta-bo

[Project]Meta-bo is a liminal nano-universe, a fantasyscape.

Its construction originates from Anime & Manga, from expanded Photography, Cinema & Art.

 

I work within this fiction, not because I cannot distinguish fiction from reality,

but because I consider it to be more effective ...

Otaku has been associated with mental sickness:

'They' say we're perverted by imagery and moe;

we lack basic social skills, empathy, even self-awareness.

Otaku as a symptom of entertainment consumerism.

 

What if otaku culture was a global avant-garde,

offering strategies to cope with (and survive)

our current state of fear and myopic towards

a deeper interaction with audio-visual life forms,

towards emotional and sexual relationships

between humanity and its creations.

 

In our perpetual moment of play we construct animated life.

I’m otaku.

I’m erocentric, transcending ethnicity, gender, religion or nationality.

My gaze is focussed on transformation, on the art of time-based seduction.

This voyeurism is not passive but a form of expression and communication.

Otaku culture is shared voyeurism.

 

[Project]Meta-bo is part of this;

a happy cog in the machineries of audiovisual fantasy and sensorial pleasure.

Its aesthetics are wet, the point of views simulacra based.

 

Inspired by the romanticism of piracy,

[Project]Meta-bo sets me free to explore boundaries

and the joy of permanent suspension of disbelieve.
