Sometimes it can be irritating visiting an exhibition of video-based art. You come in halfway through one of the videos or near the end of another, and you feel that you’ve missed something and wonder if you should stick around to watch it from the start.

Accordingly, the design of his exhibition at the Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery is aimed at getting round such problems, providing visitors with an immersive experience where every moment can count, and where you don’t necessarily have to stay until the end.
