"MIZARU is about life and death, and how the border between life and death exists everywhere. This border is happening every moment, we just do not realize it. It's hidden and decorated by many things."
"The title MIZARU is the name of one of the three wise monkeys in Japanese Culture, Mizaru Kikazaru Iwazaru, better known in English as 'See No Evil', 'Hear No Evil', 'Speak No Evil'. The literal translation of Mizaru is 'not to see'."

MIZARU is an interactive performance installation that responds to people's touch to create visuals and music.
A stretched sheet of spandex acts as a membrane interface sensitive to depth that people can push into to create visuals and expressively play music.
Made possible with generous support from The Burning Man Organization and Black Rock Arts Foundation.
